Wardrobe missing that special something? Well, then, consider the lovely Everyday Pantsuit Tee from the fine folks at Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. The look is “Bringing a whole new meaning to casual Friday*,” according to its description on the Clinton campaign website. The asterisk at the end of the tagline is there to note that the pantsuit tops don’t come with pantsuit bottoms, so be sure to put on an appropriate bottom prior to heading in to the office on casual Friday. The pantsuit, though popularized in U.S. politics by Hillary Clinton, was introduced as a fashion staple in the early 1990s by Senator Barbara Mikulski, a Democrat from Maryland who is retiring at the end of her term, and former Republican Senator Nancy Kassebaum. No word if either of them will receive royalties on T-shirt sales. The Everyday Pantsuit Tee comes in one color right now — red — and has a two-word message on the back: “Pantsuit Up.” In fact, those are the two words Clinton used in a tweet Tuesday morning announcing that the clothing item had gone on sale.
