This Week in Fashion: American Apparel Rob Ford shirt, MILJO release eco-backpack, upcoming events & parties
Though originally launched as a Halloween pop-up, American Apparel's Factory Outlet (215 Spadina Ave) will stay open until the end of December to offer deals and steals through the holidays. The spacious temporary location offers a massive selection of off-priced sample, past style, over-dyed, vintage, and imperfect clothing, shoes, and accessories, like jeans in every colour at 45% off and tights for $4. Oh, and there's even a Rob Ford t-shirt you can grab at this location alone. It's better than a Bobblehead.

The shop will be open from 11 am until 7 pm daily.
