Life is Tough

by Tom Bozzo

Monroe Street purveyors of optimistically-themed T-shirts and related items J.B. Goods, previously Life Is Good, have a For Lease sign in the window.

Comment: We strolled in there back when John was an infant, and the staff there were so sunny in their dispositions to match the array of merchandise that I gave them six months and wondered if the commercial loan officer at the bank had actually read their business plan. That they survived for two years is something of an accomplishment.

However, given the zeitgeist, Twigs — also new at the time — has done much better with Kate Spade handbags and other products to help affluent Madison women play Big City.
