Holocaust chic? Zara withdraws ‘Nazi concentration camp’ pajamas: "In its color and placement, the “sheriff’s badge” – the word Sheriff barely visible in the negative space embroidering – is a one-for-one copy of the Star of David, the religious symbol of Judaism that Jews in Nazi Germany had to wear to mark them as second-class citizens. This was supplemented with a striped design, echoing the patterns on the robes worn by imprisoned Jews in SS death camps."
There is nothing western about the item. As pointed out in the post, a sheriff's badge is five points. The Star of David is 6 points. Nothing in the fashion of the old West had stripes, except maybe prison clothing.
