Virgil Abloh Wants To Encourage Voter Turnout With “Swing States” Shirts

The United States’ presidential election is right around the corner and Virgil Abloh is doing his part in encouraging voter turnout with his “Swing State” T-shirts. The tees come courtesy of his canary—yellow label and will consist of 13 states in total. The tees feature the “I Voted” graphic on the front which looks like the stickers the polls give out once you vote. The back of the shirts denote the respective state with a blue shade on the map of the US.

The 13 “swing states” represented by each shirt are Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin. These are the key states that Democratic nominee Joe Biden need to win in order to beat the current President.

Made-in-Mexico tee and constructed of 50% upcycled cotton and 50% recycled polyester, these tees are constructed from five plastic bottles and .26 pounds of fabric scraps which saves 63 gallons of water. Also of note, 100% of the proceeds from each tee will be donated to Virgil Abloh’s Post-Modern Scholarship Fund, aiding Black students in their creative careers.

These tees are available for pre-order on the canary—yellow webstore for $55 USD.
