Scott Sternberg, founder of Band of Outsiders, who laid off the majority of his staff a few weeks ago and said he wasn’t shipping the fall collection, posted on Instagram Monday: “The proverbial Fat Lady sings, at least for me and my time here at Band. I can’t really comment on the future of the brand as that’s out of my hands at this point, but I do want to say thanks to all of the Band fans out there who embraced and supported our brand and clothes over the years, and my employees and partners who dedicate so much energy and enthusiasm. The store should be open for at least another week so, like, go buy something cute. And enjoy it. That was the whole point of this thing after all. Scott aka @angusmoffett.”
