Weatherproof just took down a Times Square ad featuring an unauthorized portrait of Barack Obama, but now the company seems to have presidents on the brain. Via WWD: "Weatherproof is planning to mount a billboard in Las Vegas with a doctored portrait of President Abraham Lincoln 'wearing' Weatherproof jacket style 2821 (and a stovepipe hat) while strolling past the White House, paired with the slogan: 'Fit for a President.' The billboard is slated to go up on Las Vegas Boulevard near Mandalay Bay between Feb. 1 and 6 and to appear for 28 days, timed to coincide with the MAGIC fashion trade show." [WWD]
