Denim shirt with massive US flag: Goodwill
I remember growing up in the 90’s convinced that the American flag was a brand. Everybody was rocking it on pretty much everything.It was a thing. I wanted to be American but my only problem was the language, I liked the idea of speaking English but I wasn’t fooling anyone when I was watching Fresh Prince with my sister, waiting for the laugh track to then burst out in laughter too. English happened later and I went from coveting a flag to dreaming about a pink LA. Gear with lights on the heels.
