Here's the newest Pure Product from Marshall Reese and Nora Ligorano, imbued with the patriotism and pride that you've come to trust from the duo. They explain the origins of their new Dress for Distress S.O.S. American Flag Distress Pin:
When press secretary Sean Spicer addressed the press with his flag pin upside down, we knew that he had absent-mindedly handed us a new symbol. The Trump administration has ushered in an era of great peril. Pinning an upside down pin on shirt, jacket, hat or bag is the perfect sign for all to see – S.O.S.
