Marc Jacobs Apologizes for Neo-Nazi T-shirt: Marc by Marc Jacobs issued an apology and withdrew its t-shirt with graphics that resemble a neo-Nazi band’s album cover from its line. The Marc by Marc Jacobs $70 tee, which featured military boot footprints, shared an uncanny resemblance to the white supremacist band, Screwdriver’s 1987 LP "Boots and Braces." The company also issued a statement saying, “We were not trying to make a connection to that band or make a statement of any kind. We have removed the stock of the shirt from our own stores and offer our retail partners the same opportunity.” Although department store Nordstom no longer sells the t-shirt, it is still available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
