He swears by them.
Conor McGregor’s tailor is flipping the bird to the coronavirus with face masks based on his infamous “f - - k you” suit. “The Notorious” UFC star memorably sported the expletive-covered pinstripe design during the promotional events leading up to his highly publicized crossover fight with Floyd Mayweather three years ago.
“Fresh new David August Couture design,” wrote Irish designer David August Heil on Instagram Wednesday. An accompanying selfie depicts the celeb “cover artist” wearing the curse-laden anti-COVID couture, which he describes as “beautifully” handcrafted, “perfectly” fitted and washable, with a removable filter.
The masks are inspired by the F-word suit that McGregor wore ahead of his boxing debut against Mayweather in 2017, which Heil made available to buy for a whopping $6,500 following the bout, GQ reports.
And like with all McGregor merchandise, the Irish fighter’s fans have been clamoring to get their hands on one.
“I’d like to place an order,” wrote one COVID-conscious fight fanatic on the ‘Gram.
“Save me 4, can you drop off at house?” added another of the foul-mouthed facewear, of which 20 more designs are in the works, per Heil’s ‘Gram post.
Even McGregor himself chimed in on the thread, writing: “Hahaha need.” The mixed martial artist indicated back in March that his aunt died of the coronavirus, although he has since claimed that it was a misunderstanding, reports Insider.
It’s unclear how much the collector’s item accessories will run, however Heil offers a plethora of multi-colored face masks on his website for just under $200 each. The inventive tailor claims on the site that he “will help supply five (5) N95 masks to hard-hit hospitals and clinics” for every piece sold.
The mask maven isn’t the first to take to the fight against the coronavirus via provocative face cover. Two weeks ago, an enterprising Utah mom made headlines for sewing penis-themed protective gear, whose sales raised a whopping $56,000 for charity.
