While Matt Snow assures us that he loves both dogs and cats, he has to admit, "Cats edge out the dogs by a hair." Good thing he's not discriminating during National Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month, or April as you know it, as his Baltimore-based clothing company Ex-Boyfriend is donating 100% of the net proceeds from poster, magnet and keychain bottle opener sales to the Maryland SPCA from now through April 15th. Ex-Boyfriend, the "clothing that starts conversations," gets its name from that one awesome item your ex left behind after a messy break-up that you just can't bear to part with because of the awesome compliments it gets you. Snow's designs stay true to that concept, with quirky images and phrases that bring the monsters, zombies, and "foodie cuties" back to your wardrobe, and the shirts have been worn recently in TV shows including Modern Family and Tosh.0. Ex-Boyfriend has kept Art Institute of Pittsburgh grad Snow busy since he started the company with his wife, Meredith in late 2005 (It became a full-time business in 2009), but the 31-year-old Fells Point resident still had time to chat b up about the need for sincerity in the fashion world and why kids still hate eating veggies.
