Trump's Signature Collection Shirt



Trump's "Signature Collection" shirts are not made in the USA.  Surprised?  They are made sometimes in China, sometimes in Bangladesh, or sometimes they are said to be "Imported".  But, as he proudly claims, he's smart to take advantage of the law to make a profit.  In this case even if that profit comes at the expense of children laboring in Asian sweatshops.

This particular shirt, surprisingly, was hanging on a rack in this Burlington store.  I say, "surprisingly," because I've never seen a Trump shirt of any kind before.  Burlington is noted for marking down their merchandise to somewhat "affordable" prices.  This store is relatively new to Ocala and we've shopped there a few times.  I never buy much, though, as I can get higher quality at cheaper prices at the high-end shops when they have a sale.

In addition, the Burlington store in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (actually in Sunrise, Florida) got in trouble as few years back for selling goods with faux labels.  In other words the goods you were buying were not what they claimed to be.  I can't remember the resolution of the case, unfortunately.

You would have to pay me a lot of money to get me to buy a trump shirt.

Lowell, with that label I might suspect the product of being sleazy, but that might be taken as a political statement, and I generally keep politics out of blogging. Completely understand and agree with your comment about the store.

Before I read your narrative my first thought was "where was it made?" Your explanation didn't surprise me at all. I think I'd burn it rather than wear it.

Not good!

I'm looking forward to the meltdown when he loses. It'll be the Mother Of All Temper Tantrums.

It does not surprise me at all, but what some people may not know is that merchandise made in Bangladesh is not good. Yes, it is cheap, but the poor people making the clothing work in very dangerous conditions and are paid a very low wage. I saw a documentary about this a few months ago.

Seeing that would have been enough to make me leave the store.

What everyone else said.

Brilliant way to gauge the political inclinations of your readers, Lowell. Did you buy the shirt? How on earth did you ferret it out.

Perfect post for VP debate week!

I find nothing about Trump appealing. I certainly wouldn't buy his clothes, no matter where they are made!

Makes a nice rag.

No amount of money would tempt me to buy anything with his name on ☺☺

so... did you buy the shirt? hehehe
What a man, I can't believe he has got as far as he has in the race to be the Prez. But I can't really say I approve of his opposition either.

Gunn said...

I would NEVER EVER buy any clothes with the company Trump. Not from Donald, nor his daughter!
I seriously do not understand why people can vote for him. Sorry, and all that.....

That is cool!

RedPat said...

Judging by all the above comments, how can he win?
I hope you don't get too much rain and wind there, Lowell!

Bonita camisa 😉 🙋
Un abrazo.

Don't get me started :).

I don't even have words to say how disgusted he makes me. So many blatant examples of his immorality -- i can't believe so many people can still consider voting for him. I had forgotten, but your post reminds me that apparently his line of clothing was sold at Macy's ... back when he had some TV program and also when he started the birther controversy. I remember signing an on-line petition boycotting Macy's until they got rid of the line and I guess they did. I'm such a huge shopper ;>) that I don't think my boycott of any store ever would be noticed, but it was the principal of the thing.

His 'shirts' are not even worth using as rags to clean the horse crap off my boots! lol!
Stay safe with the upcoming Hurricane...
