From Our Editors
Austinites love fashion, but they also love fair, sustainable business practices. The sleek, modernist South Congress location of American Apparel appeals to both of these concerns and more, with its well-made, well-designed products. Known for their iconic, sometimes-risqué ads, American Apparel provides simple daily basics for men, women and children, as well as their line of California Select vintage items. Not only does American Apparel manufacture their products in the United States and pay their employees a fair wage, they are one of the few companies able to actually export American-made clothing. Their manufacturing process integrates a number of green and energy-saving aspects, which combine to make them one of the most forward-thinking fashion chains in the nation.
