Save Standard: New Campaign Not Sign of Pending Apocalypse

Make no mistake, losing Standard Style Boutique would be a lowdown, dirty shame…

Without a doubt some of Kansas City’s fashion forward finest would rather drink muddy water and sleep in hollow logs before they’d saddle up for an evening on the town in duds from Gap

    George Bush’s legacy is hurting Standard style…now that’s rich, Hearne. Did you consult Keith Olberman, Rachel Maddow or insert CNBC anchor here for your statistical data to back those alegations?

    I agree with John — If you are promoting your site as an alternative to the KC Star — please report the news — not an agenda. Part of the Star’s downward spiral is it’s failure to report news.

    I don’t know where to go for news anymore — the Star has turned into a blog — I was hoping that your site would be more than a blog. Sad.

    No one has claimed this site is the alternative to the Star. The site is info-tainment, dude. And really, are you defending Bush? Hey middle aged white guy, how does it feel to for once in your life be a minority? Cool.

    Props for pushing the shop local angle, but I think the ‘Save Standard’ campaign is pretty weak and a little misleading. My first reaction was “Seriously? An overpriced clothing boutique wants my charity?”

    And the Ferris Bueller tie-in is completely lost without some sort of visual cue. Nice try though.

    Way to stereotype, Mandy. It’s miniscule minded thinking like yours that keeps placing blame on the past while blindly following those that are continuing to make the same mistakes there predecessor did.
    And you’re correct, it is info-tainment. Thus I would not recommend broaching subjects like religion and abortion. And if Hearne’s goal was to draw awareness to a cool new marketing campaign of a local business–they would be better served not having him divide their customer base because of some weak and outrageous opinion that our past president is putting them out of business.

    this campaign of saving standard and shopping local is way beyond cheeky… it’s just bad! i just watched ferris bueller to try and understand the connection—big joke! they got caught in a web of stupidity and are now trying to cover it up with some lame attempt to base it on popular culture— oh wait, that movie was made in the 80’s, popular culture doesn’t apply to something so VINTAGE.
    and ps… the save standard tshirt is something like $40. if i were going to jump on the cause with my $40, why not send it to the city directly if that’s the idea behind the campaign… why would i just give it to them? bad bad bad… they need to invest in a pr person!

    i got the scoop on the “save standard” campaign….in the next few weeks they are going to have a website: that is going to highlight everything local from music events, art events, charities, retailers, coffee shops, etc…. its had an incredible response…..standard isn’t only promoting themselves its just the launch to the campaign which is actually brilliant because over the next few months its going to focus on the people in our community who are impacting kc……the shirts were locally screenprinted and actually $30… but the shirts are merely a marketing tool for the website/social marketing tool coming soon and to help to build Kansas City

    John, you’re right, I did stereotype. I’m really not down for bashing in the comments section, so my apologies. It slipped.
