well, they may not be vegan clothing, but check out your local thrift stores. I say this because a) you are recycling good clothes (many still with TAGS!!), you are helping a charity (I work for Fieldhaven Feline so that's the charity thrift I go to) and it's sooooo much better on the budget.

Like I said, may not be vegan, but it's still better for the environment ( my daughter claims) by using less of a foot print buying new. LOL

Otherwise, I know Bono and his wife make vegan clothing called ......callled Edun or Google vegan clothes...a lot pops up!!

Despite rumours about sweatshops (unfounded and possibly spread by rivals) (and their CEO being a bit of a sleazebag in my opinion) American apparel have a good model for their workers www.americanapparel.net/aboutus/vert

I need to get some new clothes and would like to replace it with clothes I feel good about wearing. I hear so many bad things about the mainstream stores at the mall between what they use and sweat shops.

I have spent a lot of time looking and I mainly only find graphic Ts. I want basics-no pictures or words. Can't really find much at all with jeans either. Affordable is something I am looking for. I don't have several hundreds of dollars to spend on each item.

If anyone has some suggestions I would greatly appreciate it!

Aimee
