In January 2018, a surprising clothing item popped up on the South Korean fashion scene: boxy oversize T-shirts with the logo of Jesse Jackson's 1988 US presidential campaign. As the weather got warmer, the shirt became a staple for trendy women across the country. Some of the shirts read "JESSE JACKSON '88 FOR PRESIDENT," while others said "JESSE JACKSON '88 BLESS YOU." There was even a misspelled "JESS JACKSON '88" line of tank tops for men…

Wow, from 1988?

Now that's what I call old leftover stock. Or someone did some bad time traveling.

PS. And why in the world would anyone want Jackson's bug-eyed face on their shirt?

It's better than Thailand's current Hitler fetish.

People put all kinds of things on shirts. Many have what appear to be random series of letters and numbers. This is some weird post-literate thing where writing and in this case advertising art are there for decoration, meaning seemingly left behind.

So weird.
