Former mayor of Hamburg, Ole von Beust, who is mainly cool because he quit his job to be together with a pretty young boy and because his full name is Carl-Friedrich Arp Ole Freiherr von Beust, invested in a jeans company.
The CDU politician bought shares of the Hamburg-based jeans brand BLESSED & CURSED, that is managed by designer Nicola Eibich and produces “designer jeans” (by the way: cool 90’s term) according to the brand itself. They sell round about 3000 pairs of jeans a year at a price point of €200. The jeans are worn by such horrible taste failures such as Jon Bon Jovi (“Bon Jovi”), Fergie (“Black Eyed Peas”), Nena, and Michael Ballack. So somehow it’s quite a good fit that von Beust now owns shares of the company.
