Old Navy Selling Gramatically Incorrect Clothing

Call in the grammar police.

With back-to-school shopping around the corner, the folks making T-shirts at Old Navy need to enroll in an English class.

According to the New York Daily News, the retailer popular with school age kids is selling graphic tees with grammatical errors. The women’s “SuperFan Nation” cotton tees offered on OldNavy.com feature the slogan “Lets Go (insert team name)!!” incorrectly printed in support of the Tigers, Broncos, Devils and other teams. (Old Navy’s SuperFan Nation line is comprised of over 70 of the largest college athletic organizations in the country.)

The T-shirts, which are being sold for $19.94 – $24.94, should read “Let’s Go Tigers!!”

It reminds us of an old sonnet: O Apostrophe, Apostrophe, wherefore art thou Apostrophe.

After much media attention, Old Navy has revealed plans to swap out the misprinted shirts.

“We’re sorry about the error in some of our SuperFan Nation graphic T-shirts,” a representative told The Daily Mail Tuesday morning. “To ensure Old Navy customers can enjoy this collection fully, we’re replacing the faulty tees at our stores and online as soon as possible.”

This clothing drama follows Friday’s $28 million lawsuit against Urban Outfitters made by 16-year-old model for “destroying her reputation.”

Hailey Clauson is suing the trendy retailer after a “blatantly salacious” photo of her taken a year prior made its way onto one of their t-shirts.
