Old Navy Earns an F in Grammar

I am no grammar nazi, but come on Old Navy. If you’ve been commissioned to design T-Shirts for institutes of higher learning then you better be 100% correct with your grammar. Apparently, Old Navy was not. According to this Yahoo article by Piper Weiss, Old Navy made a pretty big flub when they decided to spell “Lets” in the phrase “Lets Go” without the appropriate apostrophe. If you’re scratching your head then you should know that the correct grammar would be “Let’s Go.”

“The mistake is particularly glaring considering the concept of the tee: it’s a partnership between Old Navy and 70 esteemed institutes of higher learning. Duke, Syracuse, University of Texas and Notre Dame, to name a few, all signed on to be represented on the Old Navy tee. Now they might be regretting that decision. According to Fashion ETC, Syracuse University officials are leading an investigation into who approved the copy. Maybe it’s the same person who signed off on this Wet Seal t-shirt.”

Let’s make sure, that this is the last Old Navy T-Shirt we feature here. Go UH Warriors!
