When you're searching for nerdy movie-related gifts this holiday season, you can opt for something that's pretty blatant, like a Darth Vader helmet alarm clock, or go the subtle route with a gem like this replica of the sweater worn by the Dude in The Big Lebowski. This sweater, available over at 80stees, is a replica of the Cowichan sweater the character wore in the film, and regardless of who among your family and friends actually gets the reference (probably no one), this thing looks like something you won't want to take off.
Unfortunately the price tag is $200, which may be the one negative. There are some other sweaters like it on eBay that are cheaper, but this one more closely resembles the one worn in the movie. From 80stees:
Inspired by the Cowichan knits of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, this super-warm densely knit sweater features a ribbed shawl collar, durable antique brass zip-front closure, and Fair Isle detailing. Composed of a bulky-weight lambswool blend yarn, with nylon added for comfort and ease of care. Weighs in at over 5 lbs for size large.
This thing looks so comfortable, just seeing images of it makes us want to go pass out on the couch for hours with it wrapped around us. You can buy it here.
