Hollywood star Harrison Ford loved the 429 Tees so much that he bought a couple of them from a Chelsea men's store, without realising that the number code spells gay on a mobile keyboard.
Ford walked into the store recently and liked the 429 T-shirts so much, that he reportedly bought one in each color green, brown and eggplant.
However the brand's boss says that regardless of the fact that the number is associated with gay preferances, anyone feeling comfortable in them can buy them.
"It is in some way a pun on sexuality, but 429 stands for the idea that it doesn't really matter whether you are gay or straight, but it definitely matters that you are confident and comfortable in your own skin," 429 president Luis Fernandez was quoted by the New York Daily News, as saying.
