Supreme Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

It’s election day, and as Americans head out to vote, another fashion heavyweight has come out in favor of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Over the weekend New York-based skate label Supreme posted their support for Clinton on their Instagram account with an image of pro skateboarder Sage Elsesser holding up a sticker reading “I voted.”

The brand captioned the image with the text, “This might be the most important decision of your life, make it count. Go Vote Tuesday, November 8th,” adding the tag #imwithher.

This is the first time the label has ever come out in favor of a particular candidate, but in a year when the fashion industry has been particularly vocal about politics, it’s not entirely surprising.

Designers from Marc Jacobs to Donna Karan have come out in support of Clinton, while the likes of Tory Burch, Marchesa, and Rag & Bone have designed T-shirts for the Democratic nominee’s campaign store. American Vogue, meanwhile, published the first presidential endorsement in its history last month in support of Clinton.

Reaction to Supreme’s endorsement on Instagram was mixed. One user wrote simply, “if you’re a minority, vote for Hillary,” while another was a bit more conflicted, “I kinda want to unfollow Supreme for this, but I have like 10 pieces of clothing from them so I guess not.”

But no matter what you think of Supreme’s endorsement, it should go without saying: Go vote!
