From its beginnings as a brand selling high quality T-shirts, American Apparel has grown significantly in size and stature since it was established in 1989. Now, the brand is much loved by hipsters and urban girls alike thanks to the ongoing focus on quality and style that is maintained throughout all the lines. The range of hosiery from the brand includes a broad selection of styles, from stockings and hold ups to girly ankle socks and over the knee sports style socks. It also includes tights and stirrup tights, as well as fish net designs. Most of the hosiery is available as sheer black or nude and there are also white options.
