Colton Haynes has officially been out of the closet publically for a couple months — and now he wants to fill your closet. With the launch of his new official website earlier this week, the Arrow star debuted a line of limited edition merch for fans and followers.
The swag available on ColtonHaynes.com is pretty much your standard merch table fare: t-shirts, posters, ball caps and iPhone cases. It runs the gamut from the predictable to the confounding. Shirts emblazoned with Colton’s face won’t exactly raise any eyebrows — and after 15 years’ worth of washing will have definite ironic vintage appeal.
Haynes has opened up recently not only about his sexuality but also about his struggles with anxiety, so the heather grey tees with the word “anxious” printed across the front in an incongruously elegant script are comparatively clever.
Meanwhile, the selection of “DADDY” t-shirts and caps are kind of baffling. According to a recent tweet, that’s how some of Haynes’s Twitter followers inexplicably describe the fresh-faced, clean-shaven 27-year-old actor.
But, please, do not confuse these tees and tanks with the clothing line Haynes announced via Instagram last week. That, according to the video posted on the site announcing the new merch, is coming next year.
