Fashion Police – Well, Kinda
Police officers in Berlin are now prohibited from wearing certain clothing labels while on duty. The 10 brands that are banned (because of their supposed popularity among neo- Nazis) are Fred Perry, Ben Sherman, ACAB, Alpha Industries, Consdaple, Lonsdale, Pit Bull, Outlaw, Troublemaker and Thor Steinar have all been put on a black list. Who knew?
The police authorities believe that these select brands are viewed as a sign of right wing extremism, this could damage how the officers are seen by the public. Disciplinary action will be taken against anyone found wearing these brands at work.
