Now that DKNY is advertising with the Yankees, what fashion label should advertise with the Mets? New ladyblog the Gloss polled some friends for ideas. The best probably belongs to writer Maura Johnston:
The Gap, because like the Mets it is still branding itself with its 1969 glory days after all these years. Plus, the name “The Gap” speaks very well to the bridge between expectations (woo, we’re going to win the NL East!) and reality (uh? not so much) that the franchise has been unable to cross these past few years.Trenchant! But we also like the answer that came from the writer's boyfriend: “What’s that place where the clothes fall apart as soon as you buy them? Forever 21? Yeah, Forever 21. Or the Salvation Army.”
