HONG KONG: Nazi-Themed Apparel Back On Sale - Paper
The firm, which takes the Internet-style monicker izzue.com, took the original fashions off the shelves in August after protests from furious Israeli and German diplomats in the territory.
It also took down a range of store decorations at its 14 outlets which included banners featuring swastikas and flags, but has now relaunched the apparel in an attempt to recoup some of its investment, the South China Monring Post reported.
The paper printed a picture of a T-shirt with the word "Nazism" printed on the front crossed out with a black line, while a swastikas on other shirts were partly rubbed out by a "No War" message, it added.
