There are almost as many T-shirt makers as there are denim designers these days, but American Apparel holds the distinction of being the only brand of cotton basics that are “sweatshop-free,” made by U.S. workers who earn almost twice minimum wage, and have health insurance and subsidized lunches. Savvy loves being so PC as she slides into a perfect skinny-rib boy-cut tank, really great under a short jacket. The stretch cotton camisole is perfect under a wrap cardigan and the sheer-rib, three-quarter sleeve V-neck will get her through Indian summer. New parents will coo over the buy-them-in-bulk baby basics and your teenager always wants another hoodie (sigh). Don’t miss: The dog T-shirts with contrasting trim, available in five sizes and color combos. No kidding. 1125-27 Light St., 410-244-7260
