Earlier this month, Rogan posted a break-up letter to the Bowery on its Facebook page, announcing that the corner storefront had closed and that the brand was already searching for a new location. In the meantime, plans for a summer pop-up appear to be in the works.
The letter goes: "I want you to know, Bowery, it's not you, it's me. You are going to go on to do such great things, I think that this will be really good for you. I will always remember our time together with fondness." Maybe Rogan was jealous of Bowery's new love interests: Intermix, Anthropologie, and Patagonia.
