TV and radio personality Glenn Beck has added women’s denim to his 1791 & Co. clothing line, he announced on Facebook Thursday.
“As we grow so will our selection and sizes because it is time we celebrate real diversity,” Beck wrote. The political commentator calls his daughter smaller that Marilyn Monroe and his wife “a little more like the current runway models,” and says that his daughter’s struggle to find clothes that fit her growing up was his inspiration for “a fashion line that was cool, hip, and great quality that would come in sizes that would fit my Marilyn.”
Beck started 1791 & Co.—named for the year in which the Bill of Rights was signed—in June of 2011 in hopes of preserving the idea of rugged individualism that was behind the Constitution. Now, with the addition of women’s denim, Beck hopes to give women “one of those fundamental God given rights. To feel pretty.”
The jeans start at $150. Other 1791 & Co. products for women include a jean jacket, T-shirts and “Patriotic Plaid” pajamas.
