  • People still shop at H & M? Aren’t they one of the worst offenders in terms of child labor and sweatshop employment?

  • I went by around 9 last night and there were about 20 people lined up outside. This makes sense now.

  • H&M is life. I’m partial to the Farragut North Location but I might visit this one today. Yay!

      That H&M was my jam when I worked near Metro Center. I especially liked going there on Black Friday, they never had a line.

      • Same! They seemed understaffed the last time I went (long line) but the store itself is never crowded and always really well stocked. Far superior to the Georgetown location, imo.

    • fast fashion is the pits – and it’s totally possible to purchase made-in-america goods that aren’t made in our very own sweatshops (AA anyone?). and purchasing products at a higher pp due to their provenance and quality is a mindset that extends well beyond clothing…it’s up to you to make the choice…

      • Yeah but for anyone who doesn’t want to look like a 1980s whore, AA is pretty much out as an affordable alternative.

        • sorry, I meant that aa’s factories are not a great deal better than what we call sweatshops elsewhere…certainly not supporting aa

          • ah, ok, I misunderstood. (I personally can’t stand American Apparel and their insufferable attitude and revolting clothing lines!)

    Ah, OK, the store credit explains the lines. For a second, I was wondering if no one had told them about the other H&Ms in the area.

  • there’s also supposed to be a an h&m x kenzo collab dropping today, so that might explain the hype

    • I went during lunch and everyone was crowding around the Kenzo merch. The store has some slight changes; great new lighting and an expanded men’s/ dressing room area.

      • i stopped by last night as well and noticed the same. reminded me of the h&m at the outlets by national harbor. just wish they had more variety for men business casual wise, and got rid of the horrific bing print graphic tees. i can’t say i’ve ever seen anyone in any of them

  • does anyone in dc even know who kenzo is…anyone?

    and to the folks that justify buying it because it’s cheap…how long do those blouses last versus a more expensive (assuming better quality) blouse?? are you really saving money…

    • I’ve had several H&M t-shirts since 2004, so……Not saying that anyone should blindly throw money at this place or collection, but if you’re asking about longevity, sometimes – just sometimes – cheap shit lasts as long as more expensive shit.

      • You might be right “just sometimes” and longevity depends on a lot of factors…once in a blue moon and all that. Still, the response says nothing about the ethical reasons not to buy fast fashion…

    • I’ve been using the same two $35 H&M handbags for four years and they’re still in great shape! I have old H&M pumps that have held up well over the years as well (with the occasional heel tip replacement). Some of the stuff is great quality, you just have to be selective. And it fits a lot better than the more expensive brands that run bigger.

  • They have the best t-shirts.
