Default Does Kevin Smith own only one shirt?

I swear, every episode of or commercial for Comic Book Men that I see, he's wearing that same orange and blue hockey jersey. CNN was on one of the TVs at the gym, and he's being interviewed on Piers Morgan. Same hockey jersey. They show clips of some talk Smith was giving, and in that clip, he's wearing the <i>same jersey</i> that he's wearing on Piers's show.

WTF man, you're worth $25 milliion. BUY A NEW SHIIIIIRRRTTT!!!

Ha! I thought the exact same thing at the gym tonight! He wore the same jersey when he was on Talking Dead a couple weeks back.

I've heard him talk about the repeated jerseys before. He says it's his way of "branding" himself. Like Colonel Sanders or Aunt Jemima.

some people buy same shirt in batches. Theory is you don't spend time thinking about what to wear.

His shirt is so big it took all of the world's available fabric to create it...therefore the world can only afford to give him one shirt.

Damnit, I hate coming in to good threads late.

I was going to say "It's the only one in the world he could find in his size."

It hides his fat arms and belly, a lot of fat people wear jerseys because it just makes sense.

"Kevin Smith was born in Red Bank, New Jersey"

He did go to film school in Vancouver for a few months, but he is a american, who happens to "love hockey jerseys and is fascinated with male reproductive organ".

I see. I guess since his target demographic is the socially-awkward, lives-in-the-basement crowd, then that kind of makes sense.

It also has his logo on it. S.I.R.! (Smodcast Internet Radio). That is one of his current money makers.

I think he has body doubles and it makes it easier to switch them about.
