Those Are My Stripes

Sports brand Adidas has accused fashion designer Marc Jacobs of producing “confusingly similar imitations” of its iconic three-stripe motif with sweatshirts bearing four stripes down each sleeve.

Adidas filed a lawsuit against Marc Jacobs International with the District of Oregon court earlier this week, claiming the American designer’s company used a four-stripe accent similar to its registered Three-Stripe Mark to intentionally “mislead and deceive consumers” into thinking the garments were Adidas designs.


The world of stripes is cut throat.
