I like it but it sounds familiar, has a company used this before? Not necessarily clothes, just a fragment I'm remembering from somewhere or another. Tom

You can't use Finesse, or you'll get in trouble with a certain cosmetics manufacturer. If you want another French name instead, I can find you a few, if I think about it long enough. But that doesn't seem to be the direction you're taking.

Klaatu... Barada... ... Necktie. Edit: Here's a random but cool word snippet that popped into my head, that might make a good brand/band name: "triskadek" (from "triskadekophobia", fear of the number 13)

Anything "88" is going to have the "Heil Hitler" connotation (Google it if you're unaware).

This is, IMNSHO, wrong for so many reasons, and I hope pop culture bears me out. Since I didn't get the reference I did google it. First hit I came up with was Charter88, "the independent campaign for a modern and fair democracy in the UK." When I added "Hitler" to the search because there were no references in the first page of google results, I got this drivel that amounts to so much PC propaganda. The quick summation is that Target was carrying "eight eight" labled merchandise and some people were offended enough to get them to stop stocking it. No mention whatsoever about the brand actually being white supremacist, only that some guy was offended he had to look at the numbers 8 and 8 next to each other on a pair of shorts that he otherwise liked. To my particular chagrin is the author's contention that "Target's shorts and caps, which will appeal mostly to young buyers, bring those codes out into the open...The noxious thing is when these symbols make their way into popular culture and gain widespread acceptance in the mainstream." You mean like the popularization of 'niggah' as a term of endearment among Afro-Americans? That same google search brought to my attention that to ham [operators] as well as others who used telegraphy and the codes it produce, 88 means "love and kisses." That's not such a bad association, is it? Then there's 88hiphop, "bringing hip-hop worldwide since 1996." I don't buy it (metaphorically) and am now considering calling the bar/restaurant that I will eventually open "88" just to piss the wrong people off. If you're Jewish and offended by the number 88, consider growing some thicker skin. Tom *This post in no way supports or promotes white supremacist thoughts or actions. I think such people should rot in hell, or at least be forced to shop at Target for their entire wardrobe.*

when i see "88" i immediately think of "heil hitler" as in 1488 "14 words, heil hitler"....but that's cuz of my "subculture" background. i'm sure normals would never place that association i think it's too bad that "88" has such a taboo about it. i remember a news story where Target had to remove a brand called "88" because some Jewish guy was filing a lawsuit saying that they were endorsing naziism. and chinese seem to like the "88" # as well, i think it's supposed to represent good luck.

In Chinese, 88 is a terrific number.
