You may recall an incident a few months back when Marc Jacobs got the Internet's knickers in a twist by posting a photo of himself, knickers-less, on Instagram (it was intended to be a direct message). While lesser PR minds might have panicked and denied the nude photo's origin entirely, Jacobs took a perfectly unbothered stance, writing in the comments section of another photo: "Yeah. I accidentally posted a pic of my bare ass and took it town... I'm a gay man. I flirt and chat with guys on line sometimes. BIG DEAL!" It was great.
Apparently recognizing the moment for what it is — a sales opportunity — the designer has made T-shirts commemorating his bare ass making the rounds on the Internet, which he revealed on Instagram Wednesday evening. The tee reads, as the caption on the incriminating photo did, "It's yours to try!"
Sir, you win. Should anyone like to purchase one, they are now available at your local Marc Jacobs store.
