Diesel is an International clothing company that sells luxury clothes that often cost over $1000 an article. Sheer Mag is a Philadelphia punk band that often addresses economic inequality and capitalistic exploitation in their music. Recently, Diesel debuted a new line of pants called the "Black P-Frank Patch Trousers." The pants cost $350. Noticeably, the pants have a series of punk-like patches sewn to them. One of the patches is clearly based on the Sheer Mag logo. However, the band has no connection to the pants. This follows a recent trend of high end clothing companies "borrowing" punk logos and affixing those to very expensive clothes. Bands including Crass, Agaisnt Me!, and Sham 69> have each faced this issue previously.
