Once upon a time, on a now defunct site called Regretsy, there was a post about an Etsy-listed pair of "skants"
, priced at a mere $758(USD)
. Much mockery ensued, and skants became a meme of sorts, with Regretsy readers sending site owner April Winchell their own skants pictures
. And now knitwear designer Stephen West
has taken up the skants gauntlet by bringing us the next evolution in skants: swants. He's posted a tutorial on how to make your own swants
, and a video of the Swants Dance
. Swants promise to be bigger than skants ever were. Since Stephen West posted his tutorial on November 4, swants have appeared on The Today Show
, on Boing Boing
, and on Cosmopolitan's blog
, as well as on a number of other blogs and news sites. Will you
be doing the Swants Dance?
