Major Lack Of Communication

Another case of Penn identity confusion has struck again!  This time, Forever 21 has decided to manufacture and sell a Penn shirt in its collection, but they are marketing the shirt as a “Pennsylvania State University Contrast Tee.”  You would think Forever 21 knew better than to just do a silly Google Images search.

Now if you buy the shirt, Forever 21 guarantees that you can “be true to your school in this contrast crop tee!”  We’re not sure whether you should be true to Penn State or Penn but you can get this baby shipped right to your door for less than $20.  With NSO just over a month away, this could be the perfect gift for your favorite PENN15 freshman!

Update: Deep breaths, everybody. The item’s name has been corrected.

Sadly, they probably meant to do a Penn State shirt and accidentally took the wrong logo.

This is only further supported by Yale being “1978″. Is there another Yale they mistook it for?

This is ridiculous especially since one of the founding family’s daughters and current head of marketing went to Penn!

even worse, one of their daughters who helps run Forever 21, graduated from Wharton.
