This Halloween, with a bankruptcy in mind, the clothing store American Apparel is holding a contest that states take a picture of yourself wearing at least one piece of there clothing with the hast tag #AAHalloween and you qualify for a chance to win a 1987 Cadillac Allante.
why these stores cater to the 1% of the specific market that goes for these products, by this example, giving a nearly 30 year old car away to a likely 25 year old guy. The car is valued at 8,000 dollars, so that is hipster baller on a budget dough right there.

If I were to class these stores based on overall appeal, merchandise, and history, Urban Outfitter's is the best, followed by Tilly's, Pacsun, and American Apparel last. Any of the style sold at these stores best fits the era's of the 60's to now, yet how can modern clothes be vintage, or retro, this year marks the 25 year limit on cars build to qualify for "antique" license plates notoriety. This is really surreal because 1990 was 25 years ago, ok, 1900 was 115 years ago, but the word antique puts so much more age on the matter.
The 90s overall in my opinion coming from it were so much better, the cars were easier, girls were simply, more naive, and guys could get embarrassed over the smallest problem, what TV led me to witness. People in general seems gullible, music was happier, and cleaner, people aren't singing about there problems yet, primary colors were the only way to go, and everyone looks like dolls and action figures because how the hair and glasses fit there faces. My perspective on the people during the Clinton Administration vs. the people of the Obama Administration seem to be very different, I did not mention the Obama influenced people, because we are them, in 20 years, I will mention us, and compare us to the 48th president influenced crowd. Although using presidents as a unit of time seems stupid, because H.W. Bush was here until 1993, and W. Bush was here for the great years of the last decade.
Its amazing just how many people care about the thoughts I choose to put on paper, but because we now live in the "paperless-age", what I put on this blog. This seems about all too many topics, but again they all bounce off each other, the difference between the 90's and the current age, the clothing trends that were popular then and now, and how these stores are taking advantage of what is still reletivly modern clothing, and chargin extra for a graphic t-shirt that says "Clinton-Gore 96", over a blank t-shirt, because the 1996 election seemed so historic since its 2015. Then the comparison of how people to me seems then vs. now.
