American Apparel - first of all, I've never been a fan of their advertising and the way they portray women in their ads. I've always felt kinda creeped out by them in the back of my mind, but I liked that they were sweatshop-free and had reasonable prices. Since I started buying from them, I realized that the clothing quality is not very good and their customer service is pretty bad. I've received a couple of shirts that had seams coming undone (one of which was not replaced), I've received the wrong size shirts, and have had slow and unfriendly customer service. Add in the sexual harassment lawsuits against the CEO and you end up with a company with questionable ethics and and products (in my experience). I'd rather not support them.
Alternative Apparel - I enjoy this company's clothing and the fact that they have organic options, however the are a bit pricey and it's unclear whether they use sweatshops because the information on their website is very vague.
