An online shop selling hoodies printed with outfits worn by notable historical figures sparks outrage as shoppers wonder why only one women is celebrated.

Philadelphia-based online retailer Gearhuman’s ‘historical costumes’ collection boasts printed hoodies of uniforms worn by Prince William, Alexander the Great and Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin, to name a few.

But of the 103 different jumpers, it appears only a Queen Elizabeth II jumper depicts a woman’s outfit.

Clergyman Marcus Walker spotted the website and posted his unusual find to Twitter.

He captioned the post: ‘Everybody. Stop whatever it is you’re doing. There is a shop selling hoodies in the style of historic costumes and it is EVERYTHING.’

But shoppers were quick to point out the site’s faux pas.

Twitter user Jacqueline said: ‘They are amazing, but where are the women’s styles? If men can dress up as Napoleon where is my Josephine empire style?’

When Mr Walker replied to say there was a Queen Elizabeth II option, Carl Anderson said: ‘One outfit from 6 pages. Very disappointing.’

Kim Frinton wrote: ‘Where is Jane Austen when you need her? Or Florence Nightingale? Or Cleopatra? Or Elizabeth I? In short – WHERE ARE THE WOMEN?’

Twitter used Nom de Plume questioned why Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn, wives of Henry VIII, weren’t included.
