Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Narco Shirts

Tuesday, March 8, 2011 |

They are all accused of drug trafficking and share the same weakness: Ralph Lauren Polo shirts. José Jorge Balderas Garza, a.k.a “JJ”, Edgar Valdez Villarreal, a.k.a “La Barbie”, and Marcos Carmona Hernandez, a.k.a "El Cabrito", show similar shirts when they were arrested. Benjamin Flores Reyes a.k.a “El Padrino” (The Godfather) also wore a white one but with no numbers on the sleeves.

This Monday, Marcos Carmona Hernandez, "El Cabrito", was arrested. He was regional crime boss for Los Zetas in the southern state of Oaxaca. In his presentation to the media, Carmona was wearing a red polo shirt with the number 2 on the sleeves.

When Federal Police arrested Benjamin Flores Reyes “The Godfather,” one of the alleged cartel leaders and founders of the Independent Cartel of Acapulco (CIDA), he was wearing a white polo shirt. To a large extent the same one worn by Edgar Valdez Villarreal, aka “La Barbie”

La Barbie was arrested on August 30, 2010. Besides his sarcastic smile, one thing that surprised everyone was his polo t-shirt with the legend 'London' on his chest and the number 'two' on both arms, just like Carmona.

La Barbie started this fashion, when he was transferred from a police center to prison. At that time he was wearing a similar shirt, but in blue.

Another shirt had the number 'three' on the arms, but this shirt was worn by José Jorge Balderas Garza, aka “JJ” at the time of his arrest. He was accused of drug trafficking and participating in the assault on soccer star, Salvador Cabanas. Balderas followed the fashion set by “La Barbie” and was imitated by Marcos Carmona Hernandez, aka "El Cabrito".

Miraaaaaa.... Que bonitas se ven! Do you think these shirts are meant to symbolize their rank in the group? Or are they just stuck in the 90's? I bet these QUEENS never picked up a hammer in their life, other than to splatter someones BRAINS on the floor...Wasn't Barbie crying about not having his lotions and perfumes? WTF was he expecting company? Puro Maricon en EL JALE these days!!! thanks gari

Maybe they should just automatically arrest anyone wearing these shirts. You are either a narco, a wannabe narco or just have really bad taste.

So the Mexican military and their allied policing forces PRESENT to the press these men in Ralph Lauren Polo shirts? Is this not to help get the public infuriated with the enemies of the Mexican National Security State?

What shirts do Hank and Slim wear? I bet they don't get Goodwill rejects... What American 'leaders' does Slim hug and embrace? Y Caldy?

Perhaps the number on their sleeve, depicts their rank in the organization....just saying

One theory is that these guys are dressed in the polo's by their captors.

Porno - Charvet dress shirts are good taste. $1400 each but of course Narco's like La Barbie could afford such extravagance quite easily.

Any idea why "La Barbie" is pictured wearing to similar Polo shirts (a blue and a green one) while under custody. Or does he still have pull and brought his wardrobe upon arrest. They are dressed with the polos by the law.
