Remember the onesie from last summer that was released on the shores of Montlake to the Huskies? It’s now in Pullman, just in time for winter Cougar fans!
Anybody who remembers the story that we released almost a year ago (or just read it due to the link) knows that I was not a huge advocate of the one-piece outfit born from Husky purple and gold and known as the “Swagga Suit”. Yet here I am, putting in the good word that the Swagga Suits Brand has released exclusively on FanSided that it is now in glorious Crimson and themed to our very own Washington State University.
It’s no coincidence. A bet between a Cougar fan and Husky fan brought the suit from the ugly to the beautiful. Here’s the story, released by Swagga Suit Co-founder Josh Brewer:
Some may wonder why in the world we would make Swagga Suits for the WSU Cougars?
Story time with Swagga Suits Co-Founder Josh Brewer
The story goes a little something like this…Sibling relationships are never perfect, and my family is no exception. My 14-year-old brother Jed is a brat! Anything I like, he hates, and anything I despise, he loves. But sports were that one thing that always brought us together. We are both die hard Seattle sports fans, but it was too good to be true. I love my brother to death, but never trust a guy named Jed. When I made my decision to attend UW, out of spite, he manipulated our elderly aunt into buying him a Cougars jersey. All of a sudden he was a Coug for life.
We started Swagga Suits almost exactly a year ago, and Jed refused to put one on, but he bugged every week to produce WSU suits so he could get one. At first I was able to ignore him but when he approached me one day with a bet I listened. His confidence in his team was high at the time, as he exclaimed, if the Cougs win the Apple Cup you have to make WSU suits. I confidently obliged without even doubting my team. Ouch…
The Cougs deserve their credit for their apple cup victory and Swagga Suits is excited to be able to contribute to this great rivalry. It was always our goal at Swagga Suits to make our product available for all Pac-12 schools so WSU was always in our plan, but Cougs have a 14-year-old boy named Jed to thank for expediting the process. Swagga Suits is proud to announce the release of WSU suits, and we are also pleased to share some photos of none other than Klay Thompson repping his Alma Mater in the new WSU Swagga Suit. Thanks for all the support!
Where the Huskies chose former UW big man Jon Brockman as their model, the Cougs went with a slightly more decorated model to take their suit to the streets and featured below: Klay Thompson.
Yep, you now have your one piece suit for the winter, or bedtime, or anytime really, Cougar fans. If you want to order one now, click here.
