The Best Men’s Vote Clothes and Accessories 2022

Red, Blue, or indifferent; the upcoming election is sure to be one of the most historic in our lifetimes. According to the U.S. Elections Project’s numbers, on Tuesday, October 20, 2020; voters had already cast more than 35 million early votes, with two weeks to go until Election Day. Total voter turnout is expected to be record breaking. Still, we’ll bet that you know somebody who is hemming and hawing about showing up to do their civic duty. No matter your party affiliation, this is not the time to shirk responsibilities. Encourage everyone you can to do whatever is necessary to get out and cast a ballot. One easy way to do that is by wearing some patriotic election apparel. Here we’ve selected some of our favorite pieces — from graphic t-shirts to sweats to shoes — to help you get out the vote.

Levi’s may be the single-most “American” brand in existence, and has taken a proactive stance on voting this election season, giving up some valuable real estate on its e-commerce website. Best of all, you can actually customize several of the t-shirt’s messages; i.e., in this case, “think” could have been your verb of choice.

According to a recent Gallup poll, a whopping 42% of Americans consider themselves to be Independent; leaving 28% Republican, and 27% Democrat. We guess that means that Independents get to choose their representative animal — the wolverine, maybe? — even though they don’t have much say in the primaries (depending on the state). For the rest, the Donkey and Elephant have been icons of the Democratic and the Republican parties, respectively, for around 150 years. Show your pride either way. 

Opposuits Mighty ‘Murica Suit

Because sometimes ya just gotta do it. Think of it as your go-to outfit for every Election Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Flag Day to come. These colors don’t run, they werk.
