Campaign Wear Gets Fancy, Adds Collar
Enter: the official 2012 Team Romney men's polo shirt. Why a polo shirt? Look, if you're going to wear slacks, your shirt better have some buttons on it. Here's the description from the Mitt Romney campaign:
"It's official. Summer is here, and so is the Team Romney Men's Polo shirt -- just in time for the first days of summer and in honor of Father's Day. And we're offering supporters like you the chance to be among the first to get one".
The blue polo shirt, with its sleek and subdued "Romney" logo (which some say is oddly reminiscent of a certain toothpaste brand), will set you back $40.
But the Obama campaign isn't just a bunch of slobs hawking T-shirts. In fact, they're selling a whole line of polo shirts, from the $40 polo with a "rugby-inspired Obama U insignia," to the $65 polo designed by Russell Simmons. Designer political polo!
