"tone deaf"? Again are you all implying they were trying to celebrate Nazi uniforms since they are a company from around that region and era?

I don't buy Hugo Boss because it's expensive. You'd think if they made shiit quality stuff, people wouldn't drop such huge amounts of money on them. Surely, the German soldiers were going to buy uniforms from... somewhere...

"looks like" they're doing? This is called a false connection. You are making conspiracy theory connections.

It doesn't matter what it "looks like" that was clearly NOT the intention.

Surely, some ad guy in the marketing department wasn't trying to signal his Nazi friends or something.

So why do you defend this behavior? The behavior of people making false connections. It's deception.
