American Apparel, your one-stop shop for mesh bralettes and pants marketed to adult women but sized for children, is having an image crisis. Disgraced CEO Dov Charney is a proven lech and stock prices have plummeted. Now, Bloomberg reports that the beleaguered company is undergoing a makeover to prove that they’re more than just vaginas on… READ MORE »

Just when you thought American Apparel was pushing limits via racy ads with exposed buttholes and mannequins with pubic hair, they go and cross that line one more time for their biggest “oh shit” moment of the year thus far.

But then you went and posted a thong ad on your Tumblr featuring a peek-a-boo of a perfectly waxed asshole riding a bicycle, or as a commenter calledREAD MORE »

There’s a dark period in my life that I don’t walk about very much. It’s the time when I lived in a Brooklyn neighborhood called Bushwick. You’ve probably seen it on “Girls.” Fittingly, my roommate then worked at American Apparel. It was a brief but memorably terrible time of warehouses, leotards and constantly feeling squicky… READ MORE »

Look, American Apparel has done something I actually like! No, not that ridiculous nerd glasses/high-waisted panties/knee socks outfit — I’m talking about the hairy bush poking through the edges of the panties. A reader of the blog Gothamist spotted this ode to the ’70s-era bush on a mannequin in one of AA’s New York City… READ MORE »

Meet Jacky. She’s the newest American Apparel model, and someone who is solidly outside of its 15 to 30 demographic. We’re not sure how old Jacky is, but it’s safe to say she’s probably old enough to be a lot of other AA models’ mom. Which is why it’s cool that AA tapped her to… READ MORE »

American Apparel has made a pretty penny on the backs of its risque marketing campaigns, which feature barely clad “real” models in all sorts of sexy poses and situations. But the British Advertising Standards Authority (BASA) isn’t having any of it, and has warned Dov Charney’s company that they need to tone it down or… READ MORE »

“It’s getting strange, you know? Things are strange. Like, at our company, we’re all about gay rights–everyone’s sexuality is human. But, there’s still the conservatives, the scared people, just looking for a little enemy, looking for new sexual things to clamp down on. But we don’t want to fall into that trap–only talking about sex–because… READ MORE »

Here’s a completely revolutionary idea: Work for nightmarish overlords of institutions people are fascinated by, and then put the experience into a book about how it’s actually worse than everyone imagined.

American Apparel’s print ads for their shoes show one going up a woman’s taut, slightly arching butt, as well as a man’s hands pulling up a woman’s dress from behind while they both wear American Apparel shoes. Of course they advertise like this: sex (still) sells. I’m not offended (I think they’re hot!), but I’m… READ MORE »
