If we were to tell you that KFC made merch and it's actually, like, good, would you think we lived in a parallel universe? In a world where the host of a scripted reality show is our POTUS and The New Yorker questions whether we are living in a computer simulation following the Great Oscars Mixup of 2017, the unthinkable is our new reality. And our new reality includes KFC merch being decent, so deal.
This sweatshirt, for example, is surprisingly wearable. It retails at $76, which is a lot to pay for a sweatshirt from a fast food chain, but how else can you easily let everyone know you're a card carrying member of the #FriedChickenUSAGang. You can't. So you must buy this sweatshirt to show your allegiance to fried chicken, obviously.
This gold-plated necklace rings in at a much more affordable $12. This piece is great in particular because, from far away, one might think it was a nameplate. But then, upon further examination, they will realize your devotion to repping KFC at all times. Seriously, if you don't ride for KFC, you can't hang.
For people who value subtlety, here we have socks for a mere $8. With their bright colors, they could easily fit into a streetwear ensemble situation.
This Zinger® pin is just large enough to be seen from Google maps streetview. And although your face will be blurred out for privacy reasons, someone could recognize you from your 'fit, so don't let them catch you straying from your loyalty to fried chicken sandwiches at any given time.
