American Apparel’s latest edgy softcore fashion must-have: “assless tights.” [April Fool’s Day edition]

Via on Apr 1, 2013

This might be the ultimate meta April Fool’s day post—I was google-image-searching for “American Apparel April Fool’s Day,” looking to write an April Fool’s post making fun of American Apparel’s neverending (and successful) search to offend the world and further-sexualize women through fashion while running a remarkably ethical corporation run by a much-reviled trailblazer/perv.

And google offered up something so ridiculous it’s real…only in American Apparel-land.
