American Apparel to Offer Delivery Within an Hour

You've had a long work day, you have plans after work but something has happened to that outfit you thought would last you all day.  There's no time to go hunting for a last minute change of clothes. The question is not 'has this ever happened to you' but 'HOW many times has this happened to you'?  It seems only fitting to finally find an apparel store that provides a clothing delivery service within an hour without stepping one foot outside.

American Apparel is the first major retailer to partner with Postmates, a delivery app, to provide on-demand delivery of apparel basics within 60 minutes.  The service will be offered in 79 retail stores within 39 metropolitan areas with a selection 50 core items spanning from hoodies, t-shirts and socks.

It'll be interesting to see how customers take to this quick and easy service.  I'm more intrigued to see how other retailers might start incorporating this into their services and expanding upon this idea.

Taking Tips From a Younger Generation

What Could I Possibly Learn From A Mentor Half My Age? Plenty.

How on earth did I become an “older worker?”

It was only a few years ago, it seems, that I set out to climb the ladder in my chosen field. That field happens to be journalism, but it shares many attributes with countless other workplaces. For instance, back when I was one of the youngest people in the room, I was helped by experienced elders who taught me the ropes.

Now, shockingly, I’m one of the elders. And I’ve watched my industry undergo significant change. That’s why I recently went searching for a young mentor — yes, a younger colleague to mentor me.

How Randa and the Fashion Industry are Adapting to DIY

The term 'Do It Yourself' has turned into a phenomenon over the past decade and is continuing to gain momentum, especially in the fashion industry.

"Many industry insiders think it is just the beginning. Ask about the future of fashion, and the answer that is likely to come back (along with the importance of Instagram and the transformation of shows into entertainment) is personalization," says Vanessa Friedman from the New York Times.
