You can’t make this stuff up.

First the tunnels, then the narcocorridos, then the Netflix series. Now, inevitably, the El Chapo fashion line.

Despite all the security while he stood trial in Manhattan this year, despite the fact he was convicted for multiple drug trafficking offences, Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán was presented with and signed a contract for a designer label bearing his name and signature.

El Chapo sports and casual wear; El Chapo baseball caps and denim jackets. They are already in preparation. It remains to be seen whether the accessory lines will include a fake-diamond-encrusted revolver.

We’re not banking on Bergdorf or Bloomie’s picking up the line. Just sayin’…
