Jacobs’ “Make American Marc Again” hats, which retail for $65, are a play on Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan, widely used by various people as a form of resistance. It’s the most fashionable interpretation of the movement yet.
The product description reads that the hats are “a mantra to get you motivated,” and Jacobs recently posted a photo of the hats with only the caption “Just sayin’” on Instagram. Not much context, but then, the hats pretty much speak for themselves.
Jacobs has not shied away from making his political views clear since well before the election. He was one of the designers that created T-shirts for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign and has spoken openly about his refusal to dress first lady Melania Trump.
“I have no interest whatsoever in dressing Melania Trump,” he told WWD in November 2016, adding, “personally, I’d rather put my energy into helping out those who will be hurt by [Donald] Trump and his supporters.”
Buying a trucker hat embossed with this mantra might not be doing anything to help those people, but it’s certainly a fashionable way to protest.
