Because we loathe the peculiar iteration of kiddie porn that passes for American Apparel’s advertising, we got a kick out of the photo and description submitted to our Flickr pool by reader (and #1Consumerist reader Flickr pool submitter!) Maulleigh.
“In midtown, I saw this in the window and thought to myself, “That must be where the whores shop.” It’s not unheard of in that part of town.
No, it was American Apparel.”
Take away all the fluffy faux anti-fluff, and American Apparel actually makes nice cotton basics. But their advertising, and the the indentured servitude of their deluded employees, gives us the creeps.
