Menswear's Favorite Meme
If you follow the fellas of menswear on the various social media channels, you've likely seem 'em plenty of times before—the praying hands emoji. It's everywhere. And don't try telling us that they're giving a high five, because those hands are sacred. They're a sign of reverence and worship. Genuflecting for the internet age. "Bless me, father for I have steez." And now various forms of the hands have emerged in actual menswear. There's a popular enameled lapel pin (1) from The Knottery, a just-released patch (2) from BrryBnds and even a silkscreened American Apparel T-shirt (3). Call it a case of life, or at least business, imitating art.
