Can basics like T-shirts and hoodies be made to ooze sex appeal? This California company thinks so..
Known almost as much for its raunchy ads as for its clothes, this LA-based company makes comfortable, youth-oriented basics, such as T-shirts, tanks, shorts, jackets, hoodies, swimsuits and underwear in solid colors and cheeky retro designs. Racy posters and clothes organized by color are standard in most stores, with all clothing made sweatshop-free in Los Angeles. The store also sells cotton jersey dresses and skirts at fairly low prices, as well as children's clothes.
overpriced and annoyingly pretentious.. I was excited when I saw the ad in westword. 'hey those clothes look kinda hot' i said to my girlfriend. I liked the idea of union-made. However, that was really deceiving. I thought union-made was going to mean affordable to the masses, but in fact its really only affordable to rich-hipster-kids who seem to have nothing but time and money on their hands to look hip and better than you. So I guess I misunderstood what union-made has come to describe. So heres what it means now folks, "union-made clothes=better than your clothes" We spent quite a bit of time browsing and feeling uncomfortably judged by the other customers with their arms full of hot clothes. We found several things we liked until we looked at the price tags in disgust. We eventually walked out with two pairs of underwear, forty dollars poorer than we already were.. : what a disgrace. I shall never forgive myself...
