Rusty Wired Sweatshirt. Face it: This time of year we all like to take a break, throw on a sweatshirt and just relax. Now you can have your music, videos or even full movies playing on your mobile device with audio streaming in through the earbuds that are built into the hood strings. (Yes, the ends of the strings are earbuds.) They are machine-washable headphone drawcords. I cannot wait to get hold of one of these. The Rusty Wired is available at Buckle stores. Prices starti at $33.
