Recession Busting Basics at the American Apparel Flea Market!
There is something to be said for a basic t-shirt. We spend our lives looking for the perfect fit. We steal them from boyfriends and best friends, wear them until they beg for mercy and customize them to the point of designer-ware overload. From the simple white crew neck to go with bermuda shorts and slip ons in the summer, to the black v-neck that tops the jeans that have seen the underbelly of the city too many times, we covet the t-shirt in a way that only American culture can — and we’re on the verge of obsession.
Luckily, the people at American Apparel do their job well. Say what you will about their business practices, price range and work force; they produce a damn fine product that keeps people of all ages a slave to the namesake.
Also, luckily for me, my student council is finally using some of the $2.5 million dollar budget its vetted despite class and pay cuts to finally do something productive for a change. Come on down to my campus on Tuesday and check out what their flea market has for sale. They’re taking over the entire student center and its sure to be one hell of a mad dash for that last dangerously low v-neck with nothing over $15. You can bet your sweet ass I’ll be missing class and shoving the best of them to get some cotton that I’m sure will be in my wardrobe for some time to come.
