Marc Jacobs Releases Al Gore Fashion T-Shirts
Wait, before you go…
Sam Graham-Felsen at The Nation:
Who in their right mind thought Al Gore could become a fashion statement?
Yeah, neither did I. But on Boston’s uber-chic Newbury Street and in New York’s Soho, I’ve already spotted numerous hipsters sporting Marc Jacobs’ new Al Gore fashion line. The recently-released Al Gore t-shirts, tote bags, and trucker hats are now available at all Marc Jacobs retail stores, and they’re not even that expensive (at least by Jacobs standards).
My personal favorite is the red “Al, Save Us” tee (click on “special items” to see them). There’s also an “Al For President” shirt.
