Nelson Mandela Is Starting His Own Clothing Line

Don't worry—the former president of South Africa isn't going the way of Jessica Simpson. Nelson Mandela and his AIDS charity 46664 announced that they were going to launch their own international fashion brand this year, which includes brightly colored polo shirts with contrast trim, loose-fit shorts, and—according to the press release—even couture garments. 46664 Apparel is named after the number that Mandela wore in jail, and will be sold in a concept store to open in August in Johannesburg, South Africa.
