DOWNTOWN — There’s nothing like wearing a hot dog while eating a hot dog on National Hot Dog Day.

And Portillo’s just made that a little easier: The hot dog chain, which started in suburban Villa Park and has outposts in Chicago, has unveiled its hot dog-themed clothing line. Coincidentally, National Hot Dog Day is Wednesday.

The chain’s clothing items include a blanket that looks like a Portillo’s wrapper for swaddling your baby, hoodies with an enormous Chicago-style hot dog on them and maternity T-shirts that jokingly ask, “Boy, girl or cheese fries?”

There are also shirts highlighting their famous chocolate cake and chopped salads.

Check out the full collection, which includes adult and kids sizing, here.

Here’s a look at the clothing line:
