    What's the context?

    It's pretty self-evident, isn't it? It's a statement of quality, comparing goods or services of modest background (originally, something rural or small-townish) to the top-of-the-line stuff that, back in the day, could only be gotten in the top shops of whatever city -- aka "downtown" -- was closest at hand (or comparing something to that which was only enjoyed by those living downtown). Basically, it's a take on "the real McKoy" expression, only with a geo-class perspective.
