Blankets with sleeves might be a mostly affordable product available to the masses, but it doesn’t stop high profile celebrities from joining in the fun…even though they probably didn’t buy theirs.

I wonder if she mucks out the horses in that?

There is something wonderful about seeing Robert Crawley from Downton Abbey in a Slanket. If sleeved blankets were available in the post-Edwardian era, then you just know all the rich people at Downton Abbey would be lounging around in them all day.

“I say Mr Crawley, you seen to have spilt a drop of port on your blanket with sleeves”

Japanese Slanket TV commercial

Gary Clegg, the inventor of the Slanket was a surprised as anyone about his product’s whirlwind success. He invented it one cold night as a student, completely oblivious that it would grow to become a wordlwide brand and company, making him pretty rich along the way. All he wanted to do was to stay warm while watching TV.

From its humble beginnings The Slanket has now grown to be a fully-fledged manufacturing company that states that it is proud to listen to its customers and aims to put them first at all times.

The Snuggie may have come along and ridden a dumb but memorable TV Commercial to success and wild riches, outstripping the Slanket in like for like sales along the way – but it is the Slanket that has put quality above quantity, and for our money it is still the best blanket with sleeves available on the market.

The Slanket is now sold in 40 countries and here is the official Slanket TV Commercial for Japan. Gary Clegg even features at the end of it to tell viewers a little bit about the Slanket story.

Here is a picture of the BBS’s Evan Davis relaxing in a leopard skin Slanket.

If this is where the British license fee is going…..then I approve.

One last demand however, any BBC journalist or presenter with a Slanket must wear it on TV Shows, not just for their radio shows.

Come on Evan, presenting Newsnight and delivering those tough and insightful questions will have more gravitas if you were wearing a Slanket. Sort it out.

John Prescott in a Slanket

Look at this, if ever two things were meant to be together it is Lord Prescott and a Slanket!

Prescott looks right at home in this, plus the sleeves on a Slanket means he has his hands and arms free should he ever feel the need to throw a jab.

John Prescott in a Slanket

John Prescott may not be the most famous entry in our Famous people in Slankets and Snuggies series, but he is easily our favorite. There is no question that Prezza would have taken that home and is probably relaxing under it now.

Interview with Gary Clegg the inventor of the Slanket

This is an interesting little interview with Gary Clegg, the guy that invented the Slanket when he was 17.

Gary Clegg talks briefly about the Slanket story on ‘How’d You Get So Rich?’, a US show focused on entrepreneurs and wealth. The interview is cut a bit short, but it is interesting to hear a little bit about the story behind the growth of the Slanket.

The Slanket is now sold in over 40 countries around the world
