The owner of a Denver-based boutique is talking shit about our 'hood. Why? Because he's jealous of our threads. And I don't blame him. Fancy Tiger shop owner Matthew Brown devoted a bunch of time opening his first fancy-pants clothing store, only to have a bunch of whiny bitches say "This is just like my favorite store -- in Brooklyn!" No doubt they were referring to Park Slope's own Something Else On Fifth.
So after the 500th yipster made this shocking comparison, Mr. Brown did what any self-respecting shop owner on the verge of a nervous breakdown would do: He made a shit ton of promo postcards proclaiming, FUCK BROOKLYN.
Whoa, settle down there, guy, you're surely thinking. There's enough eco-friendly canvas slippers to go around. Before you all get your jeggings in a bunch, it's all in good fun.
“The point was to say you don’t have to go there anymore — you can get it here," Brown said. "It was a compliment."
Riiiiiiight. Who's buying it?
