Another Useless Product

It's been a while since I've posted one of these, so I'll throw out this disclaimer: Useless in this case mean unnecessary, superfluous, or with limited application/use. And in some rare cases, actually useless.

Today's culprit comes to us from the indispensable work wear maker, Carhartt (when I say work wear, I mean manual labor, not corner office). And in the vein of work wear, many of their finest offerings continue. But now they're verging on useless.

Presenting the Carhartt Flame-Resistant Chambray shirt. Perhaps I'm remiss in dubbing this item useless. Any number of careless professionals could find great utility in flame-resistant clothing: welders, fire breathers, chefs, dragons. Bonus: if you size up, it doubles as PJs for absent-minded smokers. It looks like Carhartt jumped on the chambray bandwagon and tried to put their own work wear spin on it. (via Selectism)

Quick tip: If your clothing catches on fire more often than never, you've got three options: stop playing with matches, suit up, or call 911. Fires are no laughing matter, unless there's a clown involved.
