No sooner than the day I read Stevi's excellent explanation of the brand names of the various Gap affiliates — The Gap itself, Old Navy and Banana Republic among them — I find out that the newest offshoot, Forth & Towne, is closing — at its new Santa Barbara location and nationwide. Very strange. Apparently there's no market in America for fashionable mom-wear.
American moms, please revert to light jeans that pooch up in front.
If there's any upside in this, it's that something I have at least some interest in might move into Paseo Nuevo in its place. That, plus the idea that I'll never again have to write "Forth & Towne," which I think looks doubly misspelled.
