Barron Trump has made it clear that his mother is not the only style star in the family.

In June, when he and his mother moved into the White House, he wore a blue T-shirt that started a frenzy online.

It said “The Expert” on the front, and it was sold by J. Crew – a brand favored by former first lady Michelle Obama.

People rushed online to buy one, but the shirt was not to be found. It had been off the market long before Barron was photographed in it, Business Insider reported.

But Barron caused yet another T-shirt clamor on Sunday, this time with the shirt he wore when he and his parents returned to the White House after a two-week break.

The $25 red tee – another from J. Crew – bore the catchphrase “On your mark tiger shark” with an image of a shark on the front. Reddit users rushed to find the shirt.

Initial media reports suggest the T-shirt sold out within minutes of Barron’s photo hitting the Internet. A version in key lime green has also sold out on e-commerce store Zulily.

A note on the J. Crew website reads: “We’re sorry. This item has been so popular, it has sold out.”

It’s not clear, though, whether Barron is following trends or setting them. Eeither way, J. Crew at this point really should pay him a modeling fee.

“I’m just going to buy every single shirt on J.Crew so maybe I’ll have the same t as Barron some day,” wrote Reddit user TrumpFan253.
