American Apparel - Again
The most read, or watched, post on this blog is the post on American Apparel (11 May).
Without wanting to say anything negative about Ukrainian and French made marinières, I have to confess that my thick AA sweater is an absolute favourite of mine.
Somehow, though, I believe there may be something else about American Apparel that attracts all these visitors.
And who am I to judge anyone for that?
It may have something to do with the sexually charged advertising, which has been criticized, but has also been lauded for honesty and lack of airbrushing. American Apparel images often display subjects with their blemishes, imperfections and asymmetrical features highlighted and attached with brief, personal descriptions. Many of the models in American Apparel's sexual advertising are recruited by Charney and his colleagues on the street, or company stores.
