“Overdressed does for T-shirts and leggings what Fast Food Nation did for burgers and fries.”
Cheap fashion has fundamentally changed the way most Americans dress. Stores ranging from discounters like Target to traditional chains like JCPenny now offer the newest trends at unprecedentedly low prices. And we have little reason to keep wearing and repairing the clothes we already own when styles change so fast and it’s cheaper to just buy more.
Cline sets out to uncover the true nature of the cheap fashion juggernaut. What are we doing with all these cheap clothes? And more important, what are they doing to us, our society, our environment, and our economic well-being?

One of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long time.
The way you weave people, places, social issues ,economics and history into a powerful book on Fashion is brilliant. I feel so much smarter and responsible in my view of the fashion world from the garment district to the cubes of discarded clothes sold to 3rd world countries. Thank you
