There's now eshakti:

And most recently,  True Religion has become an apparel store.

May I please note the commercialisation of my discipline in the USA, Anthropology, as a fashion shop both online and on-street, as 'Anthropologie'.
It might even have begun in the EU. Its website is coded both in British English and in German. http://www.anthropologie.eu/anthro/index.jsp

Let us hope that the same does not happen to Indologie.

Best wishes,
