Ladies and gentlemen, behold: the most Americanest American-made jeans of all time, courtesy of Glenn Beck, 1791 Supply & Co.

Seriously. The shock-jock conservative pundit who loves “his America” so much it often brings him to fiery tears has just unveiled his own line of jeans made from Cone Mills selvage denim (by way of North Carolina) and sewn in Kentucky. Both cuts are of the politician-approved dad-jean variety. Interestingly enough, for their American List pedigree, these jeans tally in at less than 150 greenbacks.

Which seems very 99%-er of him.
