I don't know why Kenneth Cole insists on beating us over the head with his stupid ad campaigns, which consist of glib maxims demonstrating his supposedly passionate liberalism. Remember Benetton? They used the same gambit, and it didn't exactly keep the brand relevant and cool. We don't care if you're pro-choice, Ken; we care about the clothes. All the sloganeering is likely meant to distract us from the reality: The clothes are so-so at best, though some of the women's accessories aren't half bad.
