The Onesie, Love it or Hate it?

Onesie Love Em or Hate Em?

Show a little onesie love to Mum on Mother’s Day next week-end. But from some of the news stories it seems that there is a debate raging about the onesie, love it or hate it? An Angry Buxton resident, Mr Critchlow, made it into his local paper by saying university students going to the shops in their pyjamas or onesies are giving the town a bad image. He went on, ““I think it is unbefitting that the students are permitted to leave the residency in night-wear, dressing gowns, to visit the local Co-op or takeaway. “ And on a familiar theme, the BBC noted that a shop in Northern Ireland had banned customers from shopping in their pyjamas and onesies. In a more light hearted vein, spoof news site The Daily Mash reported that the last adult onesie in the UK had been destroyed in a controlled explosion in front of cheering crowds. The Safety Manager responsible stated, “It’s a powerful act, showing the world that we’ve turned our back on a shameful time when it was acceptable for a grown adult to wear a giant all-in-one like a crapping baby.” Seems a bit harsh. Then we saw another post showing onesie hate, a crime of fashion, “Game Abandons All Taste and Decency with Switch Onesie” which means that retailer Game has decided to celebrate the launch of the new Nintendo games console, The Switch, with a specially designed onesie. But the post goes on, “The misshapen monstrosity’s official title is the ‘Switch Suit’, which at least captures some element of the design’s intention: it reverses between a hideous purple pyjama form, and an inept approximation of a suit.” No onesie love there I fear. But some of you Gamers must be concealing your onesie love because stories again emerged of fans going in search of the Xbox onesie. And US website Teton Gravity asks, “Did Helly Hansen Make the Onesie Cool Again?” The sports gear company introduced a ski onesie to celebrate their 140th anniversary. Don’t think we would ever claim our funzee onesies make you look cool but they are fun, and cosy and practical so show your onesie love with pride.
