Wet Seal: Bad-grammar shirt intentional

Jan. 26, 2011 at 4:07 PM   |   Comments

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Jan. 26 (UPI) -- California women's clothing brand Wet Seal said a grammatically incorrect T-shirt slogan was an intentional error.

The T-shirts, bearing the slogan "If your single, so am I," using "your" in the place of the grammatically correct "you're," set off a number of posts to the company's Twitter account from spelling-minded consumers, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

But the company's Twitter writer responded to the criticisms with a tongue-in-cheek message substituting "you're" for "your."

"It's a fashion statement. ... I am jealous for you're keen eye for grammatical errors though," the Twitter message said.
