The shirt that drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was photographed wearing in his meeting with Sean Penn can be described as blue, striped and loud. And now it's in high demand, according to the shirt's designer. Meanwhile, actor Sean Penn disputes accusations that his interview with Guzman led to the capture.
