British brand Evil Twin has named one of their military parkas "Belsen Was A Gas," which maybe wasn't such a good idea considering Belsen-Bergen was a concentration camp in Germany. Sure, the name is a reference to a Sex Pistols song, but that doesn't really make the choice all that less weird. Or a good idea in terms of selling things. [Jezebel]
