Being this handsome not guaranteed. Actually, never mind, we guarantee it.
What better way to spread your love of Brooklyn then by outfitting everyone you know with stylish digs from your favorite blog? The Brokelyn Apparel shop features an affordable selection of our premium logo tanks and tees designed and handmade locally by Brooklyn Royalty designer and Manufacture NY director Bob Bland.
Because people apparently don’t understand puns anywhere in the rest of the world, your giftee will get a lot of folks staring at their chest being like ‘Where’d you get that awesome Brooklyn shirt? Oh wait (double-take) “Brokelyn”?! That’s hilarious!’ Given this inevitability, we especially favor this green and orange racerback tank. Though, given that “everyone looks busty in it” maybe don’t gift it to your girlfriend or tween cousins. (more…)
Would you pay $85 for a Brooklyn t-shirt? Do you live here? Our friends over at Racked/NY alerted us to this haute new t-shirt collabo from two French guys that’s selling for $85 at Opening Ceremony, a snazzola Manhattan boutique where models and other fancies like to shop. The t-shirts come with two extremely clever embroidery choices: “Williamsburg” or “Brooklyn.” Being Brokelyn, we’re contractually bound to dump on any and all $85 t-shirts, and this one is kind of an easy kill.

It’s time we got to know you a little better. So we came up with our first ever Brokelyn Reader Survey to find out your favorite ’90s TV show, porn star and Staten Island neighborhood. (Maybe.) Take a few minutes to fill out your Brokelyn Reader Survey by Monday, April 16, and you could be the randomly chosen winner (though you won’t feel like one afterwards) of a dive bar crawl with the good-time gang that we call Team Brokelyn. And there’s more! We’re giving one Brokelyn t-shirt away each weekday to one lucky survey filler outer. We know you probably have all sorts of big plans this weekend, but the earlier you complete our survey, the more chances you have to look sharp this spring. Like these guys. Thanks for reading, and on the survey, please double your income for marketing purposes. KIDDING!

Christmas is only 26 days away; Hanukkah… that’ll be over before winter’s even a distant blip on the horizon. The holidays are HERE. Last year, we brought you some must-know holiday tips like this and, definitely, this. But December was mostly about our version of the ubiquitous gift guide: 25 Brooklyn gifts for $25 and under. We asked friends and readers, pestered storekeepers, and scoured stores and gift shops for Brooklyn’s best cheap gifts. There was some pretty cool stuff. And this year, we’re doing it again, but we need some help: your eyes and ears to help us stock the list. Come up with something good, and you’ll have a gift of your own: a new edition Brokelyn t-shirt. Here’s how it’ll work. (more…)
First of all, Brokelyn would like to thank the readers who responded to intern Trevor’s plea to buy t-shirts, and we are still hoping for purchases from those who simply made salacious comments. Big thanks to Alex in Pensylvania. Mary in Kentucky. Gail in Queens. And so on.
Now we’d like you to meet Christine, another tireless Brokelyn intern who would like your help. Christine has spent her summer trolling shoe discounters without buying anything and scarfing up swag at the Siren festival. Wearing temporary tattoos because she can’t afford real ones. Stealing identities and writing bad checks. (Oops, sorry, that actually wasn’t Christine at all.) But you know what a Hipster Thrifter loves most? A good party. And that’s where we need your help.
The more t-shirts we sell, the better sendoff we can have for our amazing interns. Please buy yours today. Christine might sneer but inside she’ll be grateful.
