Larger-than-life figures have long inspired others to do great things: Gandhi showed MLK that nonviolent protests could play out positively, and Babe Ruth showed Cecil Fielder that even morbidly obese men can play professional sports. For a larger-than-life icon inspiring the grand act of keeping you not-naked, check Obey Clothing

Dropping a fresh spring bounty, Obey fashions streety shirts, jackets, pants & more designed by South Carolina-reared artist (and Obama "Hope" poster artist) Shepard Fairey, who originally guerrilla-promoted the brand by canvassing cities with stickers featuring a drawing of legendary mega-human Andre the Giant, every one of which drank 120 beers a day. The you-coverings start off with rolled-sleeve-tab-equipped button downs like the heather blue Carpenter w/ dual flap-chest pockets, and plaid blue or gray Sierra; longsleeve stuff includes the Whispers micro check-patterned button down, plus hoodies like the black "All City Champs" (w/ circular logo of a broom sticking through a bridge) and the slim-fitting "Creature Comforts" made of Terry cotton, which is extremely comfortable, although not quite as durable as Terry Pendleton. The lineup continues with hooded jackets like the black polyurethane, exterior-pocketed "Rapture" and the wax-coated cotton "Wasted Youth" with a furry fleece hood lining; get ham-coverage from straight-leg denim like the skinny "Poor Boy" or the 98% cotton/2% spandex "Juvee", which is where Councilman C.T. Martin vows to put anyone who wears them too low

Obey's also peddlin' backpacks like the leather side-zip "City Skate", logo pint glasses, snap-back caps, and wallets -- which due to his love of casinos, is something Cecil soon won't need.
