As the coronavirus continues to spread in the United States and in countries around the world, loungewear brand Talentless appears to be leaning into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's call for people to wash their hands often — as it recently released T-shirts and sweatshirts printed with the phrase "Please wash your hands."


Talentless was created in 2018 by Scott Disick, the co-parent of Kourtney Kardashian who's known for his appearances on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."

The brand is notorious for selling pricey, minimalistic loungewear — sweatshirts, sweatpants, and other basic clothing items — that can cost up to or more than $100 per item.

Talentless announced the release of the "Please wash your hands" shirts and sweatshirts in an Instagram post on Friday.

The clothing items are available in four colors each, and in sizes for men and women, on the brand's website. The T-shirts are priced at $49 and sweatshirts cost $129.

While the brand does not explicitly mention on social media or its website if the "Please wash your hands" design is in response to the COVID-19 virus, several commenters on the Talentless Instagram post appear to draw the connection.

"With coronavirus it will be a hit for sure," one commenter wrote.

Another commenter wrote: "Never seen a more truer statement in my years!"

"With the hysteria going on at work, I need this," another user wrote in the comments.

Other followers responded with emojis of bars of soap.

The CDC recommends hand-washers to scrub for at least 20 seconds, saying it's one of the most effective ways to protect oneself from infectious diseases like the coronavirus.  

Representatives for Talentless and Scott Disick did not immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment.
