Likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump revealed his official campaign logo today, and as many a jokester on the internet has noted, it looks like sex.
But a few people in the more fashion-y corners of the internet have noticed that the logo looks like something else: a style of branding closely associated with delightfully tacky sportswear from the 1990s.
Mused writer Ayesha Siddiqi:
This is very true! The Trump/Pence logo does look like any number of fashion logos from two decades ago. But the question remains: which one?
No one can decide what mid-tier 1990s American sportswear company logo the Trump/Pence logo looks like— Matthew Schneier (@MatthewSchneier) July 15, 2016
It might be Ralph Lauren Sport:
It might be Phat Farm:

It might be Tommy Hilfiger:
That this looks exactly like a 1998 Tommy Hilfiger logo almost makes you forget about all the multidirectional hate! pic.twitter.com/FSs69dKPl7— Joe Berkowitz (@JoeBerkowitz) July 15, 2016
It might be a badly Photoshopped amalgamation of Champion, Reebok, and Nautica. Either way, stay tuned for the inevitable accompanying fragrance launch.
