From H&M:

...plus several more Japan-themed clothing over on their website, including a sushi print cropped tee and a trompe l'oeil sailor shirt.

Is it wrong that I want that mint top with zero irony? It would be like wearing my dog on a sweater. Wish it came in white for the full Japanese Spitz effect.

I imagine tumblr #aesthetic youths will be all over this.

Yo, so if you guys don't know me, I'm a sucker for galaxy print and that magical girl sweatshirt is awesome. Anyhow, I tried to chat to a rep regarding sizing but eh... "true to size" which means small dudes will probably want a large simply to get extra length. They also got matching leggings for complete synergy. Wear 'them under your pod shorts.

FURTHER INVESTIGATIVE REPORT: medium leggings have an inseam of 29" and the body length of the magical girls sweatshirt is 25.75". So, have at it :D

@oucho Dunno. I'm a sucker for played out looks? I generally just like the color scheme. Particularly for these items, it fits the motif vaguely.

Is AA going bankrupt or something?

Eh, may be really limited stock. Just kind of weird seeing a $68 get marked down to $7... Looks like they're adding more items though.

Is there anything sexier super veiny-ass ankles and vans w/o socks?

American Apparel isn't going bankrupt, doing really well for sales actually. Paula Schneider, the new CEO, wants to change things up a bit. She isn't a fan of how AA was basically a way for any idea, no matter how good, to get put into mass production. She is doing the steep sale to clear out the shelves and whittle down the catalog. She wants it to become a lot more mature, appeal to more and older women (and hopefully men- no word on that yet (ie if she has a target demographic for new men's clothing)).

She's doesn't want AA to be "quirky stuff that reminds you of the 80s and 90s and basics in 10,000 colors". From what I've heard, she's "cutting the fat" in almost every regard- employees that aren't up to snuff, stock she doesn't want, discontinuing lots of styles, etc. I can see the stock numbers for the warehouse (but not retail stores) and the discontinued/on sale ones aren't all just the low-stock ones. Judging by some numbers, she's discounting/discontinuing some things even though they just restocked (she did start in the middle of everything, it seems). So things you've seen at AA for years won't necessarily be around for much longer.

Have a look at the new section for women: http://store.americanapparel.net/new_cat33159

instead of one pretty basic piece in a ton of colors, it looks like there is a lot more focus on using the material and cut of the fabric to do the talking, which is honestly what I've wanted them to do since Dov left. Nice clean tunic, quality combed cotton in a jersey knit, boom done. Not 5 flower prints and 20 colors.

The hell is this

http://www.grailed.com/listings/10089-m ... even-sweat

I guess it indeed was some exclusive thing for Seven (now closed), but the price drop is pretty funny - I would be very interested to see how someone who would pay retail for that would dress.

You know it would be a badass high fashion piece if it was black, though.

Spent all of my spring break at SXSW and saw lots of stan smiths which I hadn't seen at all other than my own pair, CPs, Visvim FBTs, Yeezy Boosts, lots of supreme, and a APC x Kanye sweatshirt. Blows my mind that just one city over from where I live I can see all these things which I had never seen before in person.

Just reading this. Some of the stuff on here is pretty contradictory to things I've heard secondhand from AA's HQ, so it's pretty disheartening to realize you've been giving out answers to customers that are wrong, even if it was unintentional on your part.

I wrote to my uncle yesterday, whom I haven't spoken to in 10 years, if he could go pick up the season zine from Storm Copenhagen and he managed to get a copy and mail it to me today. I'm way too stoked about this.
