Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This hipster bodywear brand has been clinging on to life for a little while now, despite persistent rumours of imminent bankruptcy. Since it opened its first shop in London some seven years ago, ethically minded US-import American Apparel has expanded at breakneck speed. The colourful, vaguely kinky, 1980s-inspired garb (leggings, figure-hugging jersey dresses, spandex leotards, skinny jeans, tracksuit bottoms, cheerleader-style knee-highs, gold headbands and a large range of tops) seemed to capture the spirit of recent times - at least as far as twentysomethings were concerned - with simple cuts, comfortable materials and affordable prices.

The company first conquered with well-fitting cotton tees, then the nigh-on-perfect hoody that became the uniform of the East End trendy, and, more recently - in spite of their tendency to sag - with its nudge nudge, wink wink retro briefs.
