Obama vs. Hillary: The T-Shirt Edition

As the fight for the Democratic nomination continues, I turn your attention to a less publicized war between Obama and Hillary, the title of “Best Looking Campaign Shirt.”

The My Fashion Life and PSFK blogs note the existence of two limited-edition shirts being sold with the faces of the two Democratic nominee hopefuls: Barack Obama gets a striking graphic treatment by famed graffiti artist Shepard “Obey” Fairey and Hillary Clinton has fashion world darling, Marc Jacobs, in her corner with a photo-realistic black and white illustrated tee.

The Obama-endorsed design can be bought online for $25, proceeds to toward “creating more campaign t-shirts, posters, and stickers by other artists in support of Obama’s bid for President.” The Clinton shirt can be found at Marc by Marc Jacobs retail stores for the low-low price of $35 (Jacobs’ previous Clinton tee in 2004 sold for $55-$60), proceeds go directly toward Clinton’s campaign.

I gotta say, I’m kinda impartial to the Clinton illustration…but either of these fashionable items will go great with my Gore/Lieberman 2000 pins.
