- The item's name and description are a reference to the phrase "throw in the towel", an idiom that means to admit defeat or surrender. The phrase comes from the sport of boxing, where trainers may throw a towel into the ring to signal that their fighter is unable to continue the match.
- Many boxers will also wear towels similar to this one while entering the boxing ring, usually to wick away sweat generated from "warming up" prior to a match.
