Had too much to drink? Chances are, you smell like it, too. Now try to remember that smell--and imagine wearing clothes that have that signature stink, er, scent all over it 24/7. This is exactly what some folks from the Heriot Watt University's School of Textiles and Design want to recreate: fabric that smells like booze.

The tweed carries aromas of "rich malt, golden vanilla, red fruit and dark chocolate tones" and has been designed to reflect the colors of the whisky ingredients. The scent is layered into the fabric throughout the finishing process and is permanently imbued in the tweed that will not go off even after dry cleaning

'But officer, this is what my shirt smells like, fresh from the wash!'

Yeah right. Like anyone will believe you.
