Finally, American Apparel is coming!

May 21st, 2007
by Allison Kaplan

Often it seems like Minneapolis is the neglected stepchild, frantically waving to national retailers. Look at us! Look at us! Chicago isn’t the only city in the Midwest! We need you too! Eventually, they hear us and try to make up for lost time. And they’re always amazed by how polite, well dressed and enthusiastic we really are. So I have no doubt American Apparel  will be extremely well received when it finally opens its first Twin Cities shop later this summer in Uptown. Why should you be excited? American Apparel knows how to do basics. It picked up where Gap went astray and stays true to its mission of affordable, quality cotton clothes — t-shirts, tanks, hoodies, intimates, even casual dresses — the sort of stuff you’ll live in. So hooray! It’s always nice to get noticed, even if it does seem to take an awfully long time.

    Ink Harvest Designs ( or in my Spatique) – a local artist from St. Paul – only uses American Apparel in his designs.
    This brand really does wash and wear the best of any t-shirt brand I have come across.
