Work clothes that aren't made by little hungry children putting in 18 hour days

So something like this, but not made in a sweatshop © by …love Maegan, used under Creative Commons license.

Good news, Homies! I just acquired my first white collar job in a while. My wardrobe is almost completely unprepared for this, and I really feel strongly about not buying sweatshop-made clothing.

I am normally a big thrift or vintage shopper, but as everyone who does this knows, it's kind of luck-of-the-draw on whether you'll find anything. I'm a mediocre seamstress, but not good enough to produce my own clothing en mass. Combing the internet for non-sweatshop goods, I find a lot of men's bike clothes, a legion of organic hemp t-shirts, and a variety of beautiful things which are way too hippie to be my regular style, and not a lot I can wear to work.

If non-sweat shop clothing is also a priority for you, how do you make it work?

For the Homies who do their best to buy sweatshop-free clothing, how do you dress yourselves for work?
