It's not hard to believe. Many companies have engaged in some not so kosher activities in their rise to the top. Aetna (insurance) used to underwrite policies for slave owners and profited off this quite handsomely. I'm sure if you do your research into many top american companies you will find some iffy activity on their part.
but i am not surprised either

The British label Lonsdale is worn alot in nazi circles apparently because worn under a jacket all you can see is the middle letters : NSDA - the initials of Hitlers Nazi party (missing the P at the end though). The company behind Lonsdale isn't considered nazi-friendly tho.

the guy who the company was named after was a racist
What's the story behind this?
the wreath on fred perry shirts has been rumored to have a relationship with a prominent nazi symbol. while the relationship is peripheral, many white supremacist groups still buy up the stuff as a way to identify themselves to each other. it can be compared to skin head movements...
