A $68 Marc by Marc Jacobs T-shirt has gotten the boot by its designer after a blog pointed out its eerie resemblance to a neo-Nazi band's album art, according to Yahoo Shine.



The site reports “Boots & Braces,” the 1987 12-inch from Skrewdriver, one of the first white-power rock groups, featured an illustration of combat boots—soles up—on its cover. At least one other group, the hardcore-punk (but not neo-Nazi) Agnostic Front, has also used a similar image.

But according to Marc by Marc Jacobs, the T-shirt’s design was just an unfortunate coincidence, Yahoo Shine reports.
