Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of the U.S. Postal Service. I love my November visit to the local post office to pick out stamps for Christmas cards. I love neatly boxing up care packages, then handing them off to my trusty mailman.
But let’s be clear about one thing: I would never–under any circumstances–wear this $12.90 USPS Priority Mail Tube Top. It’s part of Forever 21’s bizarre new capsule collection, made in collaboration with the USPS. Among the garments splashed with USPS iconography are “Express” and “Priority” joggers and cropped tanks, a hooded windbreaker covered in USPS mailing labels, and a belt covered in USPS bar codes.
