Man, I think he's kind of handsome.

Although like, honestly they are gonna have to fire more or less the entire Halifax AA staff if there's no visible tattoos or plugs.

man the fact that the american apparel manual goes into so much detail regarding what employees should look like yet the industry basically doesn't give a shit how many transferable skills or years of retail experience new employees actually have just bugs the crap out of me. when i shop i honestly don't care that much about what a sales associate looks like because i am a lot more interested in things like how helpful they are and how well they listen to my needs and know their products and general qualities that make a good salesperson, also because i am just not shallow enough to judge a store or buy a product based on what their employees look like AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE. but i guess american apparel does want people who are that shallow to shop at their stores so they cater to that audience more and more until their key demographic is so shallow and creepy that american apparel can tighten their dress code even more to suit dov charney's weird fantasy and the whole thing perpetuates itself until it's just one giant freaky cult. nooo thank you.

i have been noticing that an increasing number of folks have been making the move to alternative apparel.

i was a really big advocate of them as a replacement for american apparel for a real long time but after ordering a shirt that was printed on alternative and finally getting the chance to wear this brand i have to say, american is definitely superior. my alternative shirt is much thinner and looser and stretchier than american and pretty much always looks a size too big on me no matter what i do (they also don't make anything smaller than ladies small, which is what i ordered, so i'm pretty much screwed here) and the very first time i washed it in the machine it actually ended up with a bunch of little holes in the bottom, i guess because it's so thin and flimsy and gets caught on zippers and such that much easier. i wash it by hand now to avoid further destruction. honestly, it's kind of a hassle and it simultaneously looks too big and dumb on me/makes me look fat cos of the stretchy material and they don't make any smaller sizes and i'm not that happy. frankly, the only reason i continue to wear it is because it's for a podcast that i like enough to provide free advertising for regardless of the brand of t-shirt said advertisement is printed on. american apparel's heavier cotton and slimmer fit were much, much nicer. i think i am actually really going to miss them after all.

The one american apparel shirt I have has been way too tight since I bought it. More than happy for everything to be Gildan or Fruit of the Loom. Fuck you, AA.

Yeah, I went to an Umphrey's show on Sunday night, bought a T, and it's an AA shirt. It is incredibly comfy. I think my hazards of love tour shirt is AA as well, it is similarly comfy. It would be kind of a shame if concert Ts of the future were less comfy.

Alternative Apparel's shirts are nowhere near as good, it is true. I heard good things about No Sweat Apparel but it seems they have ceased trading apart from wholesale trading.

Funny how hard it is to make an honest buck these days when your competitors production costs are subsidised by other people's misery.

Here in Australia we have huge taxes on cigs and they are starting to put taxes on alcohol.  Perhaps some sort of misery tax should be applied to the products coming out of sweatshops.

All of my AA shirts(shirt.woot) have holes in them. Except for my Cursive shirt, which is super comfy, and thin, and gets pilly really quickly.

All of them, except the Cursive shirt maybe, are men's shirts. They are not thin or pilly, and some are supposedly the same size, but are not. Maybe its diffrent if you buy directly from AA, but my experience with them hasn't been great. I mean, I love my Cursive shirt, and its probably my favorite shirt, but it'd get more points if it wasn't so pilly.

But with AA going out of business, I wonder what woot shirts are gonna be printed on now, and band shirts too.

Really? None of my AA shirts are pilly and they've held up really well after years at laundromats.
I just like that the generic lady cut is thinner and longer and covers up my tummy, the Bella shirts that most other places use instead of AA are awful, and men's shirts just gape on me.

some are supposedly the same size, but are not.

depends when you bought them - like most brands, AA changes the cut of most of their clothes, even the most basic ones, every so often to improve their fit and keep ahead of the competition. i have things i have bought from AA over the years that, despite apparently being the exact same product, don't fit the same. while this may appear at first to be poor workmanship, it's often just a demonstration of how the cut of that particular tee or tank changed over time. the last t-shirts i bought from AA are longer and slimmer than previous tees i have bought from them and right now they fit REALLY nice, or at least i think so.

For one thing, first world nations by and large don't have sweatshops to the extent that a tax would make sense. What that would take is a tariff on foreign goods from countries that are known to employ sweatshops, since you can't really be sure of the exact origins of any one product without a lot of legwork involved.

Naturally, the WTO would never allow such a thing.

Guys, the only answer now is Me to We Style. Sweatshop free, organic, domestically produced. Read the "about us" section on the website. The shirts fit really well and don't stretch out. Honestly I think they make the best t-shirts I've ever owned.

if you are talking about the tees made from viscose from bamboo (the regular ones on the site seem to only be $25), this is THE softest and nicest material you will ever wear in your entire life and it is worth every single penny. all of them.

My highschool gets their production cast/crew shirts from Me to We, and when bought in bulk (they do the printing) the shirts are super cheap. It was like $15-$20. I don't think it would be more expensive than AA, if something like Topatoco started getting their shirts from Me to We.

Me to We, I have a hoodie that I got through work. It is snug and comfy and nice, and my purchase of it was subsidized by my then-place of employ.
I like that many goes to children freeing and things, but I would be much more inclined to buy the shirts if they dropped the prices and let me buy them without tacking that auto-donation on there.
I mean, it is nice that I don't have to auto-compute exchange rates from the states, but threadless on sale is still a much better deal.

Hey dude it ain't just the clothes, I'm pretty cheap, too. I pretty much wait till Threadless has a $9 sale or buy most of my clothes second-hand. Even my workshirt (which is just a plain blue tee) only cost me five bucks brand new. Think the most I EVER spent on a tee was $20 for a Pintsize shirt which has been discontinued.

The fact that you can get new clothes at $5 is just plain weird. That's about $2 less than I just spent on a non-expensive baguette for lunch.

I'll miss AA shirts if they go bankrupt :/ They are some of the softest shirts I have ever owned, and the three Gildan shirts I own feel like sandpaper compared to them, so I never wear them. Then again, most of my AA shirts are from Threadless, and I could always get their own brand t-shirts, I think I like those as well.

AA might get bought out and charney replaced. the prevailing wisdom was that he was the genius guiding the company but since his advertising strategy clearly isn't working as well as he thinks and the store's gotten way away from the products that were its bread and butter and those were proven to be profitable, someone will probably realize that the concept of unique-fit, american-made everyday clothing that is fashionable, not entirely unreasonable in price and already identified with a brand is worth salvaging.

i'm assuming that the company being in debt would make such a purchase less likely, but it wouldn't be the first bankrupt company to get bought out.

If they don't file their quarterly report by Monday they could get de-listed. This is the second time in a row this has happened.

Even my workshirt (which is just a plain blue tee) only cost me five bucks brand new.

The fact that you can get new clothes at $5 is just plain weird. That's about $2 less than I just spent on a non-expensive baguette for lunch.


Actually you can buy shirts here for $2 brand new. That blows my mind. Like holy shit.

Of course they're shirts with the outline of America on it and the American flag inside instead of states and on the inside of the shirt in tiny letters it says MADE IN CHINA

Whats the point of even buying a shirt not made with the suffering of others
