The Golden Robes

The Golden Robes

If you’ve ever watched television or seen a movie, you might’ve noticed something...occasionally one the characters will be wearing a robe. It happens more often than you think. It’s obvious that anyone wearing a robe on tv or in a movie looks fantastic. It’s even more obvious that there are certain characters who look even more fantastic than the rest. Today we’d like to honor some of those robe-wearers in our first ever Golden Robe Awards.

Let’s hand out some trophies...

 

Best Appearance in the Dairy Section

The Dude, The Big Lebowski

Highway Robery - The Golden Robes - The Big Lebowski

We honor The Dude for his nonchalance while shopping for heavy cream at his local Ralph’s. We only mention it because sometimes there's a man... we won't say a hero, 'cause, what's a hero? Sometimes, there's a man. And we’re talkin' about the Dude here - the Dude from Los Angeles.

Best Appearance during a Mother/Daughter Bonding Session

Emily and Lorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls

Highway Robery - The Golden Robes - The Gilmore Girls

A spa day ends with Emily following Lorelai’s lead (where you lead, I will follow) and stealing robes from the spa. We don’t condone stealing, but if it’s going to bond you with your daughter for a whole episode and a half then it’s hard to find too much fault in it.

Side project: If you can find the fairly obscure Gilmore Girls reference on our website, we’ll give you a $15 store credit for Highway-Robery.com. Email us if you find it.

Best Appearance in a Biblical Setting

Moses, The Ten Commandments

Highway Robery - The Golden Robes - The Ten Commandments

Little known fact, but “Thou shalt not be uncomfortable” was the eleventh commandment, but had to be left off because there was only room for ten on the tablets that Moses brought down from Mount Sinai.

Best Appearance while Playing Hooky from School

Ferris Bueller, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Highway Robery - The Golden Robes

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris wearing a robe at 31 Flavors last night. I guess he’s pretty comfortable.

Best Appearance by a Never-Nude

Tobias Funke, Arrested Development

Highway Robery - The Golden Robes - Arrested Development

If you’re gonna be a never-nude a robe is an absolute must, second only to a pair of cutoff denim shorts.

Best Appearance during an Overdose

Lance, Pulp Fiction

Highway Robery - The Golden Robes - Pulp Fiction

When Vincent Vega barges in with an OD’ing Mia Wallace in tow, Lance (the friendly neighborhood drug dealer) is only able to his cool thanks to his puke-green bathrobe. It just goes to show that no matter how ugly it is, you truly can’t help but feel at ease while wearing a robe.
