4th Amendment Wear
Protest those intrusive TSA X-ray scanners without saying a word, with the 4th Amendment Metallic ink-printed undershirts and underwear. Assert your rights without saying a word.
The concept behind 4th Amendment Wear is simple: to get a few people to think a little more about their constitutional rights. With all the issues surrounding this recent measure, many people have voiced their concern over this intrusive security process. Printed with metallic-based ink, there are shirts, bras, socks and underwear from 4th Amendment Wear that shows the text of the US constitution’s 4th amendment to anyone viewing the screen.
"The clothes are designed as a silent protest against the new reality of being searched to the point where we’re basically naked. We don’t intend for this to be anything more than a thought-provoking way to fuel the debate about safety vs. civil liberties. If we sell a few items, great. But the main intention is to open more dialogue. It’s more of a conceptual piece than anything else."
