President Barack Obama might have a passable beach body, but as a proud wearer of "dad jeans," we never expected to see his face on tags in the denim section. Obama Jeanswear can however be found in Rwanda, as spotted by travel writer Kristin Luna. Those aren't the only Obama-fied objects she uncovered in Rwanda however, even though we only expected the Obama mania to be contained to Kenya, his father's home country (and maybe also the town of Obama, Japan).
Oh and we love how Obama Jeanswear creatively re-interprets the seal of the United States into something a little more imperial, flanking a shield with griffins and whatnot. Would you wear Obamapants? If yes, then next time you're in Kigali, won't you pick us up a pair?
