Two years after the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, in which over a thousand people died, we still fail to appreciate the human cost of the clothes we wear.
I say we because I don't know if you're as awful as I am, but my closet is full of clothes from Kohl's, Old Navy, and the like. But options are getting better and I'd rather have one or two quality, union-made shirts than a dozen cheaper ones that someone was exploited to manufacture.

American Giant, Osmium, Land's End, Duluth Trading, and others get my business now.

Amazon, you're not helping:
