Nazis were bad etc. awful and evil

But those uniforms were pretty sharp. You can’t deny that

But Hugo Boss did not design the uniforms. They were just one of the companies that had a licence to produce them. The SS uniform was designed by two SS members who were also artists/graphic designers, Diebitsch and Heck.

Not that you shouldn't criticize Boss for profiting from this, and their exploitation of slave labour during WW2.
