A Marc Jacobs shirt was pulled this week after customers noticed similarities between the shirt and an 80s neo-Nazi band.

The Huffington Post reports[1] that the American fashion designer’s brand had no choice but to take these t-shirts off shelves when it was pointed out that the shirt’s logo was almost identical to the artwork from Skrewdriver’s 1987 LP Boots & Braces. The popular 80s band was a white power skinhead rock band from England.

Marc Jacobs issued an apology for releasing the item, saying that they were not trying to create a connection between the shirt and the band and all shirts have been removed from stock. Urban Outfitters (URBN[2]) came under fire in a similar incident recently for creating flasks that resemble prescription drug bottles[3].
