The Resistance Panther Jacket based on the semi-militant, American revolutionary group The Black Panthers.

Since it is in France, maybe no one will get offended, but the jacket does feature a patch on the sleeve that says “Huey P. Newton” as well as a Black Panther Patch. While there's no doubt that the Resistance Panther Jacket will be warm, it might also start a race riot in your neighborhood.

Implications - Products that pay homage to big name stars or famous icons have continued to do well within varying consumer markets. Consumers openly indulge in products that attribute themselves to the success of big names -- making products that pay homage a smart product development.
