The Love & Hate of Urban Outfitters
Exposed: If you closely follow the shops on Melrose here in LA, you will also notice the knock-off versions that Urban Outfitters produces. Did you think it was limited to Chinatown? Well, I have also been a target. Not that my idea is so great, but that it actually sold very well. For your eyes only, I present to you exhibit A: my t-shirt created Jan. 2007 and exhibit B: Urban Outfitters drawing pad created about 2 month later. I should also note that they later made a 3D pattern t-shirt that you could draw on (better idea than mine, that is if the ink could stay on the fabric). Check out other side by side comparisons here.
