The perfect spycraft-related Halloween costume doesn’t exi—
Introducing the KGB is for me T-shirt, your perfect obscure-yet-low-effort Halloween costume. Each shirt ships with a red bandanna so you can recreate CIA turncoat Jim Nicholson’s iconic look.
Jim Nicholson wore this t-shirt to a CIA party in the early 1990s. He is the highest-ranking CIA officer ever convicted of selling America’s secrets to a foreign nation. He’s the only US intelligence officer convicted twice of betraying his country. And he’s the only one to have pulled it off from behind prison bars. He was arrested in 1996 on the tarmac at Dulles Airport, and convicted of espionage in 1997. His conviction was based in part on surveillance photos of him stepping into a car with Russian diplomatic plates in Singapore. While in prison he successfully co-opted his own son Nathan into passing additional information to Russia. He was motivated by a desire for money and an egotistical desire to be seen providing his family a lavish lifestyle. He is due to be released from prison in 2024.
Now you can steal his look to make a splash with all of your history-minded friends who will get the inside joke. Please note: mom jeans and New Balance sneakers are not included with this purchase.
