Seinfeld puffy shirt ends up in Smithsonian

Not news, but I just learned about it:

“But I don’t wanna be a pirate…!”

Is it one of those things they only show on a rotating basis? When I went two years ago, I tried looking for it, but didn’t see it anywhere. They did have a little section with pop culture memorabilia like the Fonz’s jacket, Archie Bunker’s chair and Dorothy’s ruby slippers, but no Puffy Shirt.

Could be. I haven’t seen it myself, but was told about it by a friend who’d been there not too long ago.

man the early '90’s were really bad for fashion and yes even I had a puffy shirt…

well it matched my mullet!

I’ve posted this before but that puffy shirt is almost identical to the one Prince wears in the movie When Doves Cry.

Not the best picture link for Prince but you can see for yourself.



Last time I was there they had a small pop culture section. And they do rotate different things through. I seem to remember the exhibit being much bigger in my youth.
