If you don’t already know, Glenn Beck has a clothing brand—a limited line that sells rugby shirts, polos and work shirts called 1791. The vibe is similar to American Eagle, except a little more “rugged,” and all of the items are made in America. That’s the political angle (of course there’s a political angle): “Made in America.”
Now, as our friends at Hypervocal reported, Beck is adding jeans to his line. They’re “premium, 100% cotton ring-spun salvage denim jeans,” which are “100% ‘made in the USA.’” They go for $129.99.
Based on the commercial, which has a dirty-hands-in-the-desert Levi’s feel, the jeans themselves aren’t terrible-looking; it’s just hard to get past the facts that A) jeans aren’t Glenn Beck’s best look, and B) Glenn Beck will make a profit from every pair he sells.
