The British fashion label Fred Perry announced last week that they stopped selling their black and yellow polo shirt in Canada and the US. The shirt has become part of the de facto uniform of the Proud Boys, white supremacist group whom Trump mentioned by name in the Sept. 29 presidential debate. But as Sarah Birnbaum reports, the shirt has been connected to white supremacy for decades.
