American Apparel – Back From the Dead

American Apparel

And you thought American Apparel was dead. Well, they are not completely dead.

American Apparel had been known for two things, racy ads and clothing all sourced and manufactured in the United States. AA had gone through two bankruptcies. The remains of the bankruptcy was  purchased by Gildan. Gildan,  not to be confused with the fictional nation of Gilder in “Princess Bride”, closed down all of the American Apparel stores. But, Gildan has revived the name and style by opening up the American Apparel website and, thereby, selling their apparel on-line.

The big problem with American Apparel is that it should no longer be called “American” Apparel. Most of their apparel is now IMPORTED. I guess American Apparel is as American as brands like “American Eagle”, “U.S. Polo”, etc.

American Apparel still has the same style – very casual and is directed towards teens and 20-somethings. Their racy ads are still there, but not quite as racy as previously.

But American Apparel has not completely dropped their American line, they have their “Made in USA Line” which shows maybe 8 different styles as of this writing.
