Artist Solange wears the Tom Of England T-Shirt from Re-Edition Volume 1 and Helmut Lang seen by Shayne Oliver shorts.
Maverick Apparel Sends Cease and Desist Letter to Logan Paul Following Offensive Video [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Logan Paul's "Maverick by Logan Paul" merchandise collection has apparently caused confusion among customers of Maverick Apparel, an unrelated New York clothing company. Maverick Apparel claims that blowback from Paul's offensive YouTube video, in which the divisive internet personality videotaped an image of a suicide victim in Japan, has resulted in $4 million in lost sales. Maverick Apparel sent a cease and desist to Paul asking that he drop the name Maverick. An excerpt from the letter reads, "Maverick Apparel has noticed a rapid and significant decline in its sales, reputation and goodwill of the Maverick Apparel brand as a direct result of your repulsive, abhorrent and mutton-headed conduct. In choosing to promulgate yourself and your maw-wallop across social media and champion yourself as an object of ridicule, hatred and contempt, you have simultaneously infected the good name of Maverick Apparel."
