As the Democrats and Republicans both head into National Conventions this week, a Bay Street men's wear merchant is enabling Canadians to vote for style and wear their political stripes. Vassi, an exclusive high-end men's wear destination for the discerning man, today announced the creation of their exclusive 'Dump Trump' tie.
Featuring multi-coloured dump trucks on the front and a bold 'Dump Trump' statement in text on the back, Vassi's 'Dump Trump' tie allows the well-dressed Bay Street man to both embrace the US political circus in a fun way, and potentially be an 'Undercover Trump Dumper.'
Vassi designed the Dump Trump tie because he believes that fashion, at its best, should relate to current social events and reflect the mood of the public … but he's not taking sides.
"I'm responding to what my clients tell me they want to wear. If anyone comes in asking for a, 'I Love Trump' or 'High-Five Hillary' tie, we'd probably do that too," added Vassi.
To celebrate Canadian 'ties' to US politics, a limited release of 'Dump Trump' ties will be available at the Vassi First Canadian Place location starting Wednesday, August 10th. Preorders of the tie are available by contacting Vassi at firstname.lastname@example.org. The $100, 100% silk ties are hand made in Italy (not China, like many Trump menswear products.)
Vassi predicts that the ties will sell out quickly fueled by Trump Dumpers, north of the border Republicans with a sense of humour, and Canadians that want to purchase a piece of presidential history from one of the most controversial campaigns of the century.
The Dump Trump Tie is available in three colours: 'Great again' Grey Blue, 'Gonna Be Huge' Basic Blue and 'Believe Me' Baby Blue.
Vassi is no stranger to political prominence, his store windows received international attention in 2012 by featuring both Obama and Romney tableau's. This year, he is planning a series of increasingly controversial bi-partisan windows to punctuate the US political circus.
While Vassi is not making a play on his personal political stance, he is firmly against mediocre menswear and seriously considered using all proceeds from the 'Dump Trump' Tie to swing the vote against subpar suits in the White House.
However, Vassi has instead chosen to donate all profits to the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre - a cause to really believe in.
