Softcore American Apparel

So I don't know how many of you are familiar with American Apparel but they started pretty small in LA. Most of the time when you got a tshirt from them it'd be as merch from a show you went to. The ads were always a little seedy with the models (who I understand all hold other positions for the company) in slightly sketchy poses, but still not too bad. Somewhere along the line they started expanding...fast, now there are stores all over the place ( LA, NYC, SF, Montreal, etc.). With the expansion, the ads have gotten sketchier. Now there are ads allover theplace that have fairly scantily clad models with the faces cut out of the picture. I appreciate that they are a very good company in terms of how they treat their workers, and where they buy their cotton, but the ads are getting shadier than abercrombie these days.

I don't understand why people are so fond of AA (American Apparel). Those t shirts can be bought less than 5 bucks in Walmart. Anyways, cool blog. And I will visit by later on

Jason makes a real good point, these shirts are ass expensive. It's nice that they're made with a conscience, but there's gotta be a way to do that and keeps end price lower
