Nittany Lion Introduces This Fall’s Top Fashion Trend: Striped Overalls

Overalls are back in a big way after Penn State’s 17-10 victory over Pitt.

The Nittany Lion pulled out all of the stops for this year’s Stripe Out, donning a pair of elegant, blue-and-white-striped overalls for Penn State’s 100th and final meeting with Pitt.

In a stunning fashion move, the Lion chose to button only one strap on his overalls to show that while he’s here to harvest some corn, he still likes to party.

Speaking of corn, Nebraska’s disgrace of a used car dealership inflatable, Lil’ Red, must have felt dead inside when he saw that the Nittany Lion wore the overalls better. There is truly no worse feeling in the world than watching someone jack your swag and look better doing it.

The Nittany Lion’s Stripe Out-fit singlehandedly did more for overalls than Urban Outfitters has done in the past four years. Expect to see everyone and their mother pulling up to the function with the single-strapped, denim overalls now that they’re officially back.

In fact, the Nittany Lion should ditch his drab scarf and commit full-time to the overalls this fall.

First of all, is it even a scarf or is it a bib? It’s a suspiciously wide ‘scarf,’ and it doesn’t wrap around his neck. It looks like the Nittany Lion is really just trying to cover his coat from all of the tailgate food he devours before kickoff. Regardless, he should leave it in Week 2, because it is now officially overall season.

Thankfully, overalls provide that much-needed bib-coverage in the front while simultaneously being pants. For God’s Sean Clifford’s sake, there are children watching. Please put on some pants.
