The world’s most wanted man may have been captured, but that may not stop his shirt from becoming the world’s most wanted shirt.
Two different shirts that resemble those of the brutal Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman Loera, a.k.a. “El Chapo,” who was captured last week, are flying off the shelves at Barabas, a clothing store in Los Angeles’ Fashion District.
The $128 silk shirts match those El Chapo wore in his Rolling Stone interview with Sean Penn. One, called the “Crazy Paisley,” features a garish blue paisley design, and the other, called the “Fantasy,” has blue and gray stripes.
Barabas’ store manager told TMZ that sales have gone through the roof; the store’s Facebook page and website both offer the shirts. TMZ reported that the website crashed from the initial surge in sales.
