The Oldest Retailer in the U.S. Bans Exotic Skins!

Brooks Brothers—the oldest retailer in the U.S.—confirmed that it stopped ordering products made with exotic-animal skins! This compassionate decision came after learning from PETA that in the exotic-skins industry, workers electrically stun ostriches and then slit their throats, hack open alligators’ and crocodiles’ necks and jam metal rods down their spines, and nail snakes to trees and tear their skin off while they’re still alive. We’re asking all brands that still sell exotic skins to join Brooks Brothers and many others, including Chanel, that have made the forward-thinking decision to ban these products of extreme cruelty. Please urge LVMH to follow suit and shed exotic skins from Louis Vuitton and all of its other brands immediately.
