Wearing a personalized graphic tee is a form of self-expression, much like choosing a special type of postage stamp or picketing the local post office because of its lack of birdhouse-themed postage stamps. Show your softer side with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of custom clothing and apparel from Apliiq.
Apliiq's fabric finders collect rare, unworn, and recognizable textiles for professional application to American Apparel garments. Acquire garments to protect rain-soluble bodies from the elements while perusing the house store, which overflows with limited-edition designs such as the Static Blast Tee ($29) and the Diani beach tee ($34) or take the reigns of sartorial responsibility yourself by using the customizer. Customers can choose from 22 garment types, select a pattern from the extensive fabric library, and decide whether they would like the appliqué to take the form of a breast pocket, triangles, or shoulder parrots, creating idiosyncratic threads such as the men's ash-gray tee with a navy polka breast pocket ($24). Apliiq produces wares for men, women, and children as well as a smattering of accessories made to order in downtown Los Angeles and packaged in a reusable fabric bag.
With purchase of products under the banner Support, Apliiq donates a portion of proceeds to one of its partner organizations, helping to empower Cambodians with vocational training through EGBOK or support tsunami relief efforts through the Japanese Red Cross, among other endeavors.
