The Dead Man's Sweater is a vanity item that can be found in Dead Man's Chests. It appears to have holes in it.


  • The Dead Man's Sweater is a reference to the "redshirt" stock character in fiction, who dies soon after being introduced. The term originates from the security staff on the sci-fi show Star Trek: The Original Series, who wear red uniforms and frequently die during episodes.
  • The tooltip of the Ivy says 'Property of Dead Man's Sweater'. This may be a reference to the fact that the Steampunker must be killed to obtain the Ivy.
