As we previously reported in our post titled Lacoste wants Anders Brevik to Stop Wearing Their Brand, Ander Breivik’s penchant for wearing Lacoste has been a nightmare for the brand. In response, Lacoste has supposedly pressured Norwegian police to stop him from wearing their apparel at his court appearances. Unfortunately for Lacoste, there appears to be no way to stop him from doing so. Reportedly, for most of his court appearances, Breivik is refusing to wear anything other than his red Lacoste sweater. Well before he committed his crime, Brevik posted the following statement about Lacoste to his website:
“People like me are refined in short supply here, so I noticed that I draw much attention That’s the way I dress. There are mainly people with little refined or not grown here. I wear the best clothes mainly from my past life, that is to say, very expensive clothes, sweatshirts Lacoste.”
There is one sign of hope for Lacoste, though. At one recent hearing about whether he should be released from solitary confinement, Breivik did wear a suit. However, that gain is probably more than offset by the fact that the news report about the hearing, made much of the fact that Brevik “had shed his signature red Lacoste shirt, instead appearing in a suit and tie.” That adjective can’t be very pleasing to Lacoste.
