Teach Me How to Thuggie

By January 3, 2011May 19th, 2014One Comment



The Thuggie is a cross between a Snuggie and a hoodie. “It started as a joke due to all the tall-tee kids in Whistler,” says Thuggie creator Bryan Pudney. “I decided to sew four obnoxiously bright giant hoodies for my buddy’s birthday to wear spring skiing in 2009. We got swarmed by people wanting to buy them. My friend and now business partner Kim [came up with the] name: the Thuggie. It combines the absurdity of the Snuggie with the idiotic notion that wearing super long tee’s somehow makes you gangster.”
