Rag & Bone has a history of looking to classic work and military wear for reference points, but a recent lawsuit brought by boot maker Danner Inc. accuses the label of being a bit too inspired in one of its recent designs.
The Portland, Ore.-based shoemaker filed its complaint in U.S. District Court in its hometown on Dec. 18. The suit accuses Rag & Bone of trademark infringement for selling a boot design named the Danner Combat Boot through Barneys New York and Saks Fifth Avenue. Danner listed both retailers as co-defendants.
