Austin Huff’s T-shirt explains a lot and raises questions at the same time.

It says, “I tweeted something dumb and now I’m paying for it.”

The T-shirt’s message can be seen beneath the one-of-a-kind Neubyrne jacket that LSU basketball coach Kim Mulkey wore March 24 to the Sweet 16 game against Utah. The jacket, designed by Baton Rouge’s Martha Gottwald, creative director and founder of her fashion line Neubyrne, is on its way to becoming an icon and found its way to Chicago because of a tweet — and the internet’s response.

On the night Mulkey wore the jacket, Huff, a sports blogger and morning radio host in Chicago, tweeted, “If this tweet gets 5,000 likes, I will find this jacket, buy it, and wear it to a Cubs game.”

By the next day, Huff was scrambling trying to track down the jacket to make good on his tweet. Once he messaged Gottwald, she was game.

“He sent me his measurements before I shipped it. I said, “You know what? It’s going to be tight, but it can work,'” Gottwald said. “It’s supposed to be an oversized jacket, which it was on Kim. Had Austin been an inch bigger, it wouldn’t have worked.”

Gottwald not only mailed him the jacket, she decided to make her way to the game in Chicago, along with LSU assistant basketball coach, Jennifer Roberts, for Saturday’s baseball game between the Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Wrigley Field.

The three, Huff, Gottwald and Roberts, sat together for the game.

Gottwald says the experience is the latest chapter in “Sisterhood of the Traveling feathered Neubyrne jacket — who’s going to wear it next?”







Chicago Cubs tweet

The Chicago Cubs got on board the LSU basketball coach Kim Mulkey bandwagon joining in blogger and dj Austin Huff’s fun of wearing the jacket Mulkey wore to the March 24 Sweet Sixteen game against Utah in Greenville, South Carolina. 




“It was honestly such a fun day. So random and so glad I was there,” Gottwald said. “This was a random, fun day with this crazy jacket story. The highlight was just watching Austin be the mayor of Wrigleyville. It was awesome.”

Gottwald was dressed for the occasion, wearing a “high-low dress made of Mongolian sheepskin fur” by Norman Bradbury, as one does for a professional baseball game.
