    same with Chrisdien Deny http://www.chrisdiendeny.com/

    they are not even trying to come up with a different but similar font, no they simply use the same nicolas cochin typeface as Dior.

    This is a couple of menswear brands I find interesting for been very similar.

    New York.

    Hong Kong.

    And of course Ralph Lauren.

    I presume this is all OK, because the word "polo" is a common noun and can't really be trademarked, and their polo player logos are sufficiently different as not to infringe each other's registered trademarks and/or copyright.

    EDIT:

    Here's a couple more HK menswear brands..

    No chance of confusing these brands is there?

    Yeh, I believe they license their brand.
    http://www.bhpc.com/licensees/

    BTW have a BHPC store here in Xilinhot, I think it might be legit as well. It's quite expensive. It's actually under our school science block, doesn't seem to get much trade though, I go past it several times a day, never see any customers in the place.

    Now another menswear tenant of the same rank of shops as the BHPC is not quite so on the level.

    Now I wonder which famous German car-maker this is based on?
