Miranda Priestley would cringe and purse her lips.

 

But maybe it's time to bring out my Jesus t-shirt again, as well as my Shoko Asahara hoodie and  Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi necktie.

"The American clothing brand Supreme is under fire for using an image of a revered monk as well as several Buddhist “yant” designs on a line of shirts they’re calling “Blessings Ripstop Shirt.” Thailand’s National Office of Buddhism says they plan to submit a letter to the clothing company for using the image of the well-known and respected monk without permission and explain why the use of the image is inappropriate" ..........."The late monk Luang Phor Koon Parisutho of Wat Ban Rai in Nakhon Ratchasima was widely popular in Thailand. Many believed the amulets and talismans were magical and could even protect the some from gunshots"

Yes total hypocrisy again   just like the  fury over shoes and socks with  the Thai flag on them  but perfectly ok for Thais to wear shoes,socks even underpants with other nations national flag on them    

in one case of  "idiots outraged" the socks  where just  red white and blue stripey socks !!!

Fans of the brand were excited that a Thai Buddhist entity was collaborating with a fashion giant.

Collaborating ? what will be their % of sales 51%?  just asking.

Where can I order?

I take one for me, mom, dad, 3 brothers, 4 sisters, their kids, neighbours etc.

 

I could place an order of 5469 pieces for a starter.

Kinda hard to get worked up about this.

 

How is it different from all the other items commemorating famous monks, like amulets?
