    Neither would I. I'm far from a prude, but I don't think I'm comfortable with the deliberate and tasteless use of urban language being used to promote products. I felt the same about French Connection's use of ****, which I note seems to have died the death now.

    It's a cheap gimmick and demeans both the companies that use these tactics and moreso their customers. Is there no sense of decorum in business?

    I think it's an Indian brand, there's nothing deliberately smutty about it, just a foreign word that sounds good to Indians who aren't aware of its other meaning, I think it's only the UK where it has the unfortunate alternative definition.

    I agree with the puerile use of ****.

    I buy lots of my clothing from charity shops or used from ebay etc.

    Heaven only knows what they witnessed or experienced in their previous lives. I don't care. Just wash and go.

    It is such an unattractive word with only one vowel in the middle of an ugly collection of harsh consonants.

    Last year I knitted a lot of hats to sell, and I cannot say what environmental hazards ended up on them, probably just the odd sneeze. I haven't had any complaints, as it is a cottage industry of a high class nature.

    I once knew a lad called Kinnell. All one had to do was prefix his Surname with an "o" and much hilarity ensued.
