If you haven’t been following along, it’s been a tumultuous year for American Apparel. But, after an ousted CEO, filing for bankruptcy, getting acquired by Gildan, pausing production for months, then relaunching, it seems like the apparel giant is finally back on its feet.
A lot of things have changed from the American Apparel of old –– production no longer takes place solely in the USA, the brand is owned by parent company Gildan –– which made some people pause when the company relaunched, but we’re still big fans of American Apparel’s new t-shirts.
Though not all of American Apparel’s t-shirts are produced in the US, they have a selection of 10 pieces that are made domestically, so there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for. In their USA collection, American Apparel includes:
A unisex tee in 100% cotton, 50/50 blend, and tri-blend
A women’s cut t-shirt in 100% cotton
A v-neck t-shirt in 100% cotton
A tank top
And a youth tee
