Urban Outfitters Highjacks Crown Farmer
According to clothing company Crown Farmer, the Urban Outfitter chain has "stolen" two of the company's designs, cut them up, placed red x's over them, affixed them to the backs of vintage blazers and is, apparently, marketing them without Crown Farmer's permission. The two t-shirt designs say "the stuff you huff" and "take pills and chill"
Crown Farmer Founder Bob Kronbauer responds to and Adrants inquiry, writing, "We were told by Urban that they were taking them off of the shelves but after being told that they've since been spotted in locations in Costa Mesa, CA and in Cambridge, MA, so they're still on the shelves. The original photos were taken by a loyal customer of ours who spotted them in their Denver, CO location and thought something was awry.
The last contact that we had with Urban Outfitters was a note stating that our complaint regarding trademark infringement and damage done to our brand had been sent to "upper management". In that same note we were told to stop e-mailing them about it."
Doesn't seem like Urban Outfitter is playing nice now does it?
