At its massive garment works in downtown Los Angeles, American Apparel designs, knits, cuts, dyes, and sews an eclectic lineup of stylish, well-fitting fashion basics. Shoppers can feed hungry closets with a chic cornucopia of comfortable classics, such as tri-blend short-sleeved track shirts in eight eye-sating flavors ($22) or ankle-accentuating striped calf-high socks ($8). Meshwear reintroduces fashionable femmes to familiar pieces recast in new fabrics and colors, such as an ’80s-style nylon Gloria-V bodysuit inset with a deep, v-shaped micromesh panel ($44). Eminently versatile, a basic leather belt ($34) tames the nebulous nature and flowy chiffon of an oversize button-up ($58). For the winter months or warm-weather staring contests with obstinate air conditioners, American Apparel also packs outerwear, such as the men’s flex fleece zip hoodie ($46) and the chunky-knit striped fisherman’s pullover ($78).
A socially responsible vertically integrated production model and a systematic aversion to waste allow American Apparel to staff its sweatshop-free facility in downtown Los Angeles with thousands of smile-wearing workers and keep its prices low and its environmental impact to a minimum.
The iconic fashion label American Apparel is known for adorning stylish customers with classic fashion basics. It's also known for edgy advertisements that display natural, unretouched beauty.
But what many don't know about the brand is that it's an American company in every sense. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in downtown Los Angeles or within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every T-shirt, bodysuit, and pair of leggings is made in a sweatshop-free environment by workers who earn a fair wage.
Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.
