A clothing chain yanked this from its product line when someone pointed out the obvious.  They say they thought it was reminiscent of Old West sheriffs.  I grew up watching western movies and television shows, but the Old West is not what this brought to my mind.  The movie The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is not that old.  These people ought to have someone with a little cultural literacy and historical memory review their products.
