ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I can't figure out if this pizza sweatshirt is a shoop or an article of commerce. If you must wear a pizza garment, Pizza Shirt sells shirts that look like pizza. Veggie, pepperoni, long sleeved, short sleeved. Made in the USA.

It’s a shoop. I can tell from some of the pepperonis.
Good call. And this looks suspiciously like the source image:
If you order one from Europe, do they embroider and egg onto it?
Cause Europeans have cojones?
It would be better if every single pepperoni were graced by a spiced, glistening nipple.
I was just thinking that!
Is that the officially licensed Spaceballs: The Movie Pizza the Hutt costume sweatshirt?
Yeah, although printing technologies have come a long way it does seem unlikely that all those pepperonis would line up so perfectly. In any case, this picture simultaneously made me feel VERY HUNGRY & VERY GROSS.
I remember watching Spaceballs & thinking, “Damn, it would be so awesome to be able to eat yourself when necessary… Wait, no it wouldn’t.”
This might just be a poor quality English cuisine thing, but is proper pepperoni supposed to taste like it’s made out of farts and plastic?
but the real question is….doe it *SMELL* like a pizza?
besides being an obvious photoshop job, that thing makes me want to grab a roll of paper towels and start dabbing.
Wouldn’t you rather have the whole sweatshirt?
I can’t see any practical benefits to wearing this, other than, perhaps, driving stoners to apoplexy.
Oh, I can see a practical application. This is the perfect camouflage to hide poor pizza eating skills.
I can see that, but it would be a little like wearing a shirt with a beer/vomit stain design, in order to preemptively disguise the vicissitudes of the drinking life.
It’s probably real. I don’t think pizza mapping capability will be possible until CS6 comes out later this month.
I would probably consider a plus sized lady more attractive if she was wearing this
i thought the pizza sweatshirt i saw a few weeks back at the link below was the same, but they are different. how are there more than one of these?
Pizza link is fierce. Sensing a possible fashion trend here.
This could be printed with a process called sublimation, which is a sort of iron-on four color process print. However, it wouldn’t look *quite* that good, and the fact that the sleeve is lined up with the chest (look at the folded sleeve) means that it’s more or less just photoshopped.
Doesn’t mean that somebody doesn’t hope to produce it.
Needs grease stains….
Pizza sweatshirt?!?! I can’t wait to see the pants-part of this ensemble.
Samurai Pizza Pants!
Oh, sorry… I guess the name of that show was Samurai Pizza Cats.
The sleeve’s pepperonis wouldn’t line up with the front like that if it weren’t shopped, and the inside of it probably wouldn’t be printed at all.
Ah, the sweatshirt for everyone who wants to look as though they’ve been horribly but symmetrically burned.
Let me guess the wearer of this sweater was the first one passed out on the floor ?
Guaranteed to attract the pepperazzi.
Old commentors are old – pizza sweatshirt is where it’s at!
Did nobody click the link? It says:
Q: ARE THESE REAL?
BUT: if you scroll all the way to the bottom, it also says:
DONT [sic] BE FOOLED BY FAKES & SWEATERS OUR PIZZA SHIRTS ARE 100% REAL
…and has this pizza sweatshirt ‘shoop crossed out. The real one is a t-shirt and the printing looks quite good. I’ve seen things printed like this in person and while it’d be obviously not real pizza, it’d be enough to fool someone from a distance (so far as you can fool someone into believing you’re wearing pizza fashioned as a t-shirt).
