Distraction of the Day: American Eagle is Confused

American Eagle has already fallen out of fashion with teens, and now it probably won’t do so well with Pennsylvania college football fans, either.

The new Penn State long sleeve T-shirt looks innocent enough. Priced at $34.99, it’s probably cheaper than most quality T-shirts in AE’s store.

Panther at WPU

Yes, it’s the University of Pittsburgh Panther, not our stately Nittany Lion. There are undoubtedly hundreds of well-intentioned middle schoolers out there right now who only want to support Penn State but are unsuspectingly walking around with a Pitt Panther on their chests. Good job, good effort American Eagle.

Update Aug. 29: American Eagle sent us an email sticking by its T-shirt saying that it is, in fact, a Penn State Nittany Lion taken from the archives. We’ll let you be the judge.
