From Our Editors
With tags emblazoned proudly with the Made in the U.S.A. moniker and simple, bright fashions that fit almost any neighborhood, it’s not hard to see American Apparel’s appeal. Their clothing, shoes and accessories are known for their edgy style and fashionable colors, with the added benefit of having every piece stitched together from their factory in Los Angeles. The downtown Seattle outpost of this retail chain is known for their ample collection of most things in the American Apparel catalogue, including the hoodies and long socks that come in hand during blustery Seattle days. Of course, the brightly-hued dresses and leggings are always popular with a certain set of youngish buyers, and the clothing cuts tend to skew toward hip-hugging, rather than baggy. If you’re unsure, hold out for one of their many sales to catch a piece on clearance.
