What is American Apparel?
American Apparel is a clothing store which hipsters were once infatuated with. The store was deemed as progressive and unique. However, unfortunately, American Apparel has become too mainstream for hipsters. Any true hipster will now tell you that American Apparel is a clothing store that any junior high student subscribes to. Putting the hipster culture aside for a moment, their clothes are usually low quality, but fit better than other brands.
Hipster - "Hey, dude is that an American Apparel T - shirt"?
American Apparel - what is it?
Popular hipster clothing staple, where solid-colored t-shirts marked "wholesale" are sold for roughly $15 a pop, when the same shirt could be purchased from Wal*Mart for $4. Then again, Wal*Mart doesn't label its clothing as "CRUELTY/SWEATSHOP FREE!" and is, of course, way too mainstream for the ever-hip still-living-off-parents elite.
San Francisco hipster: I just got three solid-colored shirts at American Apparel, and it only cost me $45! Buying stuff wholesale rocks!

American Apparel - what does it mean?
The new uniform for suburban girls ranging from thirteen to twenty-five. Once belonging to hipsters and those of artist origin, it is now (due to its expansion) worn by sluts, nerds, jocks, and hipster-wannabes all over high school grounds. Ugg boots, black lululemon pants, and brightly colourd american apparel hoodies are the new uniform for all public school students, who slowly decend on the indie scene ready to get their sticky mainstream fingers all over anything which can be salvaged. When all is said and done, if you think you were the "first one to where american apparel in your school" then... you weren't. There was some kid hanging out, behind the oak tree off school grounds smoking a cigarette and talking about the last show he/she went to, who was.
Rich Girl One
The largest clothing manufacturer in the United States. They design, manufacture and sell high quality clothing that fits well and looks good, and is made in America. They pay their workers an average of over $12 an hour, while workers for companies that outsource to the third world often make less than a dollar an hour. Their advertising has no airbrushing, and usually uses normal people at stores or who send their photos to the website. Their photos in-store genuinely reflect what an average person would look like in their clothing.
Person A: "I got the best t-shirt ever at American Apparel last month! It fits as if it's custom-made, and it's still like new after 4 times in the wash!"
While it is a designated hipster locale with ads that resemble a Terry Richardson shoot, the clothing produced by American Apparel truly is of incredible quality, created by highly economical means (as opposed to the majority of the other popular labels out these days), with far more sturdy pieces than what you often find at other hip hot spots such as Urban Outfitters. They also do not cater soley to smaller sizes, offering sizes as high as 3x, unlike most other popular stores shooting for the teen to mid/late twenties demographic. Recently, they've also begun a "newsstand" section, wherein they hold various underground literature and art magazines, offering the contributors to these publications international exposure for their work where they otherwise wouldn't be getting it (as American Apparel is one of the only remotely mainstream stores of more than one location carrying these publications currently).
If American Apparel has to appeal to the hipster populus to get kids to buy clothes that weren't made in a sweatshop in Chile for once, that's okay with me.
