In the episode Jerry inadvertently agrees to wear this Pirate-style shirt on the Today Show to promote a benefit to clothe the poor and homeless. When host Bryant Gumbel mocks the shirt, Jerry badmouths it on air, infuriating the shirt's designer. Later, Jerry is heckled about the shirt during his stand-up comedy routine. Stores cancel orders and donate existing shirts to Goodwill. At the end of the episode, Jerry and the gang encounter two homeless men wearing the puffy shirts.
