A. Kurtz Clothing (2006)|
The American clothing company, A. Kurtz Clothing, promoted a line of pseudo counter-culture military inspired fashion clothing early in 2006. The name does not appear to be based on Georges-Antoine Kurtz from Joseph Conrad's novella Heart of Darkness nor on Colonel Walter E. Kurtz in Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now (1979). The logo, a stylized letter "A" may be no more than that, or it may have been intended to echo the masonic square and compasses. A. Kurtz is vaguely described as a soldier but there is no implication that he is a corporal.
