  • It should be noted that H&M was one of the corporations, along with Walmart and The Gap, who rejected safety regulations that might have prevented the horrible factory collapse in Bangladesh. They have a pretty awful track record when it comes to labor practices in developing economies. Just something you might want to consider before shopping there.

    • The stuff they sell is utter crap, anyway,; doesn’t last very long. Cheap fabrics, crappy wages, but probably very profitable.

      • Their blazers/suit jackets are actually of very good quality– I just wore my black one with black pants to a job interview. Normally small women have to spend hundreds just to get a suit jacket that’s not big and boxy, but H&M’s smallest size has a nice slim cut that’s perfect for me. My favorite wear-to-work pumps are from H&M too. I have to get the heel tips replaced every month or so, but I think that’s because I put so many miles on them.

      • Disposable clothes. Acceptable for college kids to wear to parties, but that’s about it.

    • I tend to assume that all clothes are made in sweatshops and there’s no way to avoid buying them – do you know of an online source that has information about which brands and/or labels have better track records than others?

      • Me too. Even a lot of the fancy designer brands are made in sweatshops. If only American Apparel made clothes that weren’t ugly!

  • Well I haven’t been yet. I honestly don’t think anyone can tell the difference without looking at the tag.
