During World War II, Hugo Boss made Nazi uniforms. In 1997, the company admitted to it. And this morning, someone might have tried to take a very belated revenge—maybe. Writes a reader, "There is a neon green Star of David spray-painted on the window on the West 14th St. Hugo Boss store today. There was some acronym in the star I couldn't make out because there were four or five dudes hovering around it on cell phones trying to figure out what it was and how to get rid of it. Is this some sort of new underground street artist, or delayed reaction to Herr Boss's previous design gig?" [RackedWire; NYT]
