Food-inspired clothing like butcher briefs, meat socks and chef jeans could soon become a reality.
Several years ago, chef Chris Cosentino teamed up with goofy clothes company Betabrand to create Gluttony Pants.
Now, Cosentino is back with three new projects, and he needs your help to make them a reality, the Huffington Post reported.
These items will go into production if enough people express a desire to purchase them. For now the projects are in a "think tank" phase.
But if there are enough votes, posts on social media or comments about the items, then they could be yours for a price.
First, there's Chef Jeans, for chefs who want to wear jeans in the kitchen.
Features include a "vented crotch area, due to prolonged proximity to flame."
Next, there's Meat Feet Socks, which Cosentino says, "It's no secret that I love tasty, salted pig parts. I was looking at some salami tubes the other day and it hit me: 'Tube socks. Salami comes in a tube. Why not salami socks?'"
And finally there is Butcher Briefs. (ANI)
