american apparel... shame. shame.

thanks to anthony, i just read an article in this month's clamor magazine about american apparel - a company that i've long championed for their 'no sweat' practices and seemingly great working conditions for the workers (i.e. living wage, great health benes, etc, etc.). i'm sad to report that i've been had. *hanging my head in shame* very had. the upside of this article is the list of clothing alternatives listed at the end.
*no sweat apparel
*justice clothing
*alternative apparel

since sweatshop-made-stuff and i don't mix, and it seems that every mainstream clothing retailer goes this direction, i'm always and forever on the prowl for alternatives. enjoy!
