For many, this Independence Day will be about more than showing one's loyalty to America—it will also be a chance to proclaim devotion to v-neck tees. American Apparel will be holding their infamous Factory Flea Market over the 4th of July weekend, and they've given us five pairs of pre-sale tickets to pass off to you. Not only will you be able to skip this monstrous line and spend the rest of your weekend somewhere other than a parking lot, but you'll also get a $5 gift card and tacos for sustenance.
The first five people to send us a picture of the most hideous 4th of July-themed outfit they can find will win two passes to the event, which starts at 10am on July 4th at the brand's Downtown LA factory. Good luck!
