Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Everyone wants Zelensky's green jacket, but it won't be back in stock until Ukraine's 'victory', company says”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
While Vladimir Putin dons designer garb with exorbitant price tags, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky buys clothes where "normal" people shop, said Taras Rudnytskyi.
The Ukrainian manager runs the US operations of M-TAC, the company behind one of the signature olive green fleece jackets the Ukrainian leader has been sporting since Russia invaded his country.
Demand for the zip-up jacket soared since the conflict began, Rudnytskyi told Insider, and he's been fielding queries from people all over the world wanting to buy one ever since. "The demand for [the fleece] is very high," he said.
The company makes the fleece entirely in Ukraine, but it focused on producing solely for the country's military after the war began, meaning stocks soon ran out.
"We hope to restock it someday, maybe after our victory," Rudnytskyi said, adding that hostilities have made it difficult to continue any type of production. "Right now it's impossible."
