Creative fan stitches together rally towel suit

Jun 19, 2013, 9:11 AM EDT

Ken Cruise can do amazing things if given a couple dozen rally towels.

He collected 27 of them, stitched them together, and made himself the yellow and black suit that he wore for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Here’s a close-up of his work, courtesy of CSN Chicago. You can click here to see the full version:

The suit was signed by retired Boston Bruins great Derek Sanderson. He made it two years ago and does maintenance work after every wearing.

      Uh, that’s called a robe…

      Looks like he did a good job though, similar to the towel power man in Vancouver who’d made a suit and cape out of playoff towels. I think he added a jacket as well, but that’s a great way to step up as a fan and show your pride.

        i realize it’s called a robe. was just a poorly constructed joke. didn’t wanna go full-on dick mode and say “yeah, towel suits were useful….. when they were called robes.”

        but ya, it’s pretty impressive, not gonna lie. i was just hatin’.

        It is called a robe but towel suit sounds way better

        not to mention, if you call it a towel-suit, you can wear it to work.

        Can’t call them towel suits. A-Rabs will cry foul, and all the lowly libs will call them racist remarks.

        …i think you’re thinking of towel hat.

        lol, “lowly libs.” what an unbelievably polarized life you live.
