If you, like I, spend a decent amount of time swiping through dating apps, you've likely noticed this pattern: Every single guy is up for "having a night out on the town," but equally enjoys "lazy Sundays binge watching Netflix." Well single dudes, I've got some news for you. When it comes to option number 2, you can now impress your ideal lady suitor (me) with classic design and your nerdy love of Star Wars, (my favorite movie franchise of all time) in one fell swoop of a wool throw blanket.
Just in time for the release of Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Portland-based maker of woodsy-chic home goods and apparel Pendleton has joined rebel forces with Star Wars to create four, limited edition motifs and printed them on their signature blankets. Ready to lay down $249 for one of these beauties? Well then you have to choose a side: Are you a rebel fighter, along with Luke, Han and Leia? On the Dark Side with Vader and a couple of Storm Troopers? Do the Death Star and Star Destroyers strike a cord? Pendleton is even debuting a new villain, Kylo Ren, from The Force Awakens.
My advice? Change your Tindr pic to this guy (^) and plan a night out that ends with a cuddle sesh watching A New Hope and debating who shot first. Netflix and chill, you will.
