Yinz Better Warsh Those Tee Shirts with Cold WaterOctober 15, 2012
Located in Southside works, “412” is an urban apparel store that puts a positive spotlight on the fashion industry, which is virtually non-existent. Kudos to these guys for making a stamp in the market. And while I do like their business, they did kind of give off a…how can I say
asshole”ish” persona when I went into talk with one of the owners about doing a photoshoot with some of their gear. I mentioned to them that we recently did a shoot with Timebomb, a competitor out in East liberty.
He instantly started with the “we don’t want to do something that you just did with them. We don’t want to be like everybody else.”
“I get that, but what I don’t get is when a person in the media says, “Hey can I help promote your business for free?” you probably shouldn’t treat them like they took a piss on your floor.
Support local business, because our fashion market needs something more than another costume party and these guys need to pay the rent just like everybody else, but don’t support assholes people, they’re really annoying. Say No! I will not let you be an asshole to me. Happy T-shirt hunting.
