Chanel's hula hoop bag has got nothing on this. Subway has decided to up their fashion game with the release of a limited edition messenger bag that features an insulated footlong sub pouch. Because, really, there's nothing quite as annoying as having to jam a nice, juicy sub into whatever un-pouched bag you may be carrying around at lunchtime.
There's a catch though: The bag won't actually hit the market. No, this perfect mix of function and fashion is only being given out to a select number of lucky people who look and act sufficiently healthy. The first two recipients are former Olympian and Dancing With The Stars champ Apolo Anton Ohno, and FOX sportscaster Erin Andrews (who was also a contestant on Season 10 of Dancing With The Stars). What does this boil down to? If you aren't an Olympian, a sportscaster, or, most importantly, a contestant on Dancing With The Stars—you might actually have a better chance scoring one of those hula hoop bags.—Erika Graham
