American Apparel returns with an impressive collection that reflects its heritage and maintains the brand’s unmistakable presence in printwear and retail markets.
Founded as a wholesale company, American Apparel is known for bringing fashion into the wholesale arena. When T shirts were boxy and one-size-fits-all, American Apparel created new silhouettes in innovative fabrics. Basics were made into everyday classics.
As part of the Gildan family of brands, American Apparel will not only continue to maintain the product attributes that made the brand’s clothing a favourite, but will also provide an improved customer service experience through newly enhanced infrastructure and marketing support, and a better distribution network.
Spirit lives on
The American Apparel spirit lives on with the core products that made them a go-to brand for fashion basics. American Apparel is staying true to the high-quality, iconic styles you expect by continuing to offer cutting-edge finishes and on-trend looks with a modern fit.
With a wide range of apparel for any occasion, American Apparel’s offering is a cut above the rest. From the brand’s collections of T shirts, tank tops and sweats to unique lines of bodysuits, shorts and leggings, every style is designed to meet the demands of even the most discerning decorator or end-user.
The Fine Jersey T-Shirt collection was the genesis of American Apparel’s popularity. These 100% cotton tees for men and women come in crewneck and v-neck short sleeve options and are made from incredibly soft combed ring spun yarns. Exceptionally smooth and tight-knit, this is the signature American Apparel fabric and offers the perfect surface for printing.
The poly/cotton line of Unisex and Women’s T-Shirts is another American Apparel staple. The 50% cotton, combed ring spun/50% polyester fabric is super-soft and performs extremely well as a result of polyester’s colour fastness and resistance to shrinkage. Both vibrant solids and trendy heather colours are offered in this collection. The solid colours are union dyed, meaning both the polyester and cotton fibres are dyed simultaneously. This fabric is ideal for those who have active lifestyles and music merchandisers who provide tees for bands and concert-goers.
Another favourite is American Apparel’s Tri-Blend fabric, which drapes closer to the body for a flattering look. This 50% cotton/25% polyester/25% rayon blend is loose knit and offers an irresistible soft, vintage feel. The unique colour offering and look of these Tri-Blend T shirts are the result of a double dye process to achieve a multi-coloured effect. Whether you’re heading to the gym or just want to be comfortable on the go, choose from the sporty look of the Unisex or Women’s Tri-Blend Short Sleeve Track Shirt, the Women’s Racerback Tank or Unisex Tank Top. Whatever your preference, you’re sure to get an instant wardrobe update.
Coming in spring 2018 are exciting Cotton/Spandex, Interlock, Thick Jersey Knit, Baby Rib Thermal and Sublimation pieces, plus Flex, California and Salt & Pepper Fleece collections.
Stay tuned. American Apparel is coming soon to a distributor near you.
