Canadian Mall Brand Jacob Calls it Quits

I am honestly not surprised at this.  The Montreal-based brand has had issues for years, and bad PR plus the lack of “style” is what caused the Jacob’s downfall.  They’ve slowly eliminated brands (they had a girls’ line back in the 80s and 90s, lingerie/lounge wear, as well as Jacob Homme.  I think Jacob Homme […]
