One Shot: H&M Needs A Geography Lesson

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 22, 2013 11:15PM

Real estate agents aren't alone in getting Chicago neighborhoods wrong. American Apparel (an advertiser on Chicagoist, no less) calls their Lakeview store "Belmont Central" even though Chicago's actual Belmont Central shopping district is located at the intersection of Belmont and Central Avenues—miles away from Lakeview.

Then there's H&M, the crack cocaine of fashion, which is selling this shirt below shared with Chicagoist by reader Jason Rost.

That is Willis (Sears) Tower to the left of the topless woman in the image, which is definitely not in Los Angeles. Rost is right: H&M does need a geography lesson. Lucky for them they should have this corrected in time before people who bought these shirts need to replace them when the originals fall apart after three to four washes.
