Thor Steinar: fashionable German Neo-Nazi clothing? WTF [View all]

Thor Steinar is a German clothing brand manufactured by Thor Steinar Mediatex GmbH, a subsidiary of International Brands General Trading, a Dubai-based company.

In Germany, the brand is closely associated to neo-nazism by the Verfassungschutz of the state of Brandenburg.[1] In German media, the brand is most often discussed in the light of this association. Wearing Thor Steinar clothes is expressly forbidden in the Bundestag, in the Landtag of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and of Saxony and in several football stadiums.

Here are some examples of their products, not what one usually associates with neo- Nazis

And here are some far right legislators being removed from a local assembly for wearing the stuff:
