If you hate capitalism and want to protest everything, Barneys has you covered. They debuted their $375 ‘Antifa Jacket’ and it’s in stores now.
The jacket is actually called the “M-65 Anarcy” Antifa jacket. It is “military inspired” and great for anyone who wants to let it be known they oppose the Trump-Pence regime.
Here is the listing on their website:
Per Daily Wire:
The jacket appeared on social media Saturday during the nationwide “Resistance Marches” (that were mostly “Resistance gatherings of approximately 100 people”), and was, of course, roundly mocked and derided as “undoubtedly fake.” After all, it’s emblazoned with incredibly obvious slogans, a couple of hastily-drawn “anarchy” symbols and a punk checkerboard motif from the early 1990s. It’s trying just a little too hard.
It turns out, though, that the jacket is very, very real, and still available on the Barneys New York website.
Alpha Industries, the jacket’s manufacturer, is a longtime supplier to the U.S. military, and unsurprisingly, they told the Daily Dot they were trying to sell the mystique of Antifa to all those Millennials whose progressive politics are little more than skin deep.
“We have seen resistance to power and authority become a trend in our current pop culture and society, often expressed through fashion,” a spokeswoman for Alpha Industries said. “Since 1965 the M65 field jackets have been a favored method to graphically express one’s opinion. We developed the Barneys M65 anarchy jacket to encompass the artistic and graphic expressions of individuality.”
In short, when Alpha Industries saw Antifa, it also saw a cadre of over-indulged, upper-middle class white kids who would most certainly drop a few hundred at Barneys on some ready-made protest attire.
Might seem like a high price, but these basement dwellers will probably be able to get their parents to buy them one.
