Pharrell Williams has entered into a partnership with eco-friendly manufacturer Bionic Yarn. The firm is dedicated to make environmentally sound fabrics and Williams will act as both an owner and investor in the company, as well as an ambassador and spokesman for the brand.

Urban Outfitters pulls same-sex marriage t-shirts from their shelves.
Printed with the phrase "I support same-sex marriage" multiple times across the front of the shirt, the reason behind the yank is being attributed to "bad press."

Police in Tehran, Iran arrested 49 people for wearing "satanic" clothing.

Despite economy woes, Abercrombie & Fitch is not lowering their prices. Shockingly, people aren't shopping there anymore. [WSJ]
