So Why Not Just Say That?

Saw an ad for a place called The Garment District that read as follows:

The Garment District.
It's Not A District. It's a store.

I want to meet the person who wrote that slogan and flick them on the forehead.

Was the name "Garment Store" already copyright protected?

Silly me. Here I thought that the Garment District was like a new, up-and-coming, gentrified quarter of the Lower East Side or near the Meat Packing District. I was all ready to invest millions of dollars in real estate development. I actually had Trump on the phone...Glad that's cleared up now.

Dude The Garment District is kind of the best store, well...ever. It is customary to jump in the "dollar a pound" pile (oh wait, due to inflation and revenue shortfall it's now $1.50 lb, but they refuse to change the name). You won't even have enough time to think about how dirty this pile of clothing is before you find the best, perfectly worn-in, vintage t-shirt. In your case, it will fittingly say, "Welcome to Boston, you just caught a sexually transmitted disease."

If that's not your fancy, try the upstairs. I hear they wash the clothing up there...

That makes more sense.

Thanks for the comment, yo! And for somehow realizing how much I love t-shirts that have already been worn-in for me.

Please ask Vanessa about the t-shirt that offered a parking suggestion. And have her tell you the price check story surrounding said t-shirt.

I don't think I stopped laughing for at least 48 hours
