Seinfeld's "Puffy Shirt"

Description
On a memorable episode of Seinfeld (NBC, 1989-98), comedian Jerry Seinfeld unwittingly agreed to wear this frilly pirate shirt during an appearance on the Today show.
The hit series, famously described as a show "about nothing," reveled in the absurd situations that emerged from the everyday lives of its four main characters: Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer. The "puffy shirt" episode, originally broadcast September 23, 1993, was written by Seinfeld cocreator Larry David.
