t the start of the millennium, American Apparel was operating primarily as a wholesale business, selling ethically-manufactured blank t-shirts, and “related garments. Established in Los Anges, the brand was quick in its wave making rise as one of the iconic brands in apparel history.
The brand made great strides in gaining popularity amongst the youth in an era where Instagram influencers and social media fashion gurus were unheard of. Unlikely as it might seem, the brand fell off from rails and crumbled, owing to various reasons. However, it was revived by Gildan in recent years.
Gildan didn’t move the entire American Apparel manufacturing out of the US. American Apparel will offer a selection of t-shirts and hoodies that are produced domestically, but also have a globally made twin, letting you decide what’s more important between a US made product with a slight price bump or a globally made product that costs a bit less.
Products from the renowned brand that is American Apparel are ideal for embroidery, heat transfer, screen printing, and more. Putting designs onto American Apparel is a great way to turn them into custom t-shirts and hoodies. They are popular, being a ringspun, light-weight fabric with a modern cut and a sought-after brand name, and being American made is rare in the t-shirt industry.
Since its come back a few years ago, the brand has been offering American Apparel hoodies, American Apparel blank t-shirts, and other apparel again.
