Just over a year ago, American Apparel filed for bankruptcy and went on to close all of its stores. Customers and fans of the brand flocked to the closing sales and wondered when they would ever be able to get their hands on AA gear ever again. Some of you may have forgotten, but between 2005 and 2011 AA was king and literally ushered in the “hipster look”.
After AA closed down, Canadin clothing manufacturer giant Gildan Activewear acquired American Apparel out of bankruptcy proceedings and has now re-launched American Apparel’s e-commerce website. The new website is fully operational and features access to archival AA pieces. Unfortunately, right now the company is only shipping within the United States. There’s no word on whether the company will pick back up in Canada, yet.
Another big change for fans to note is that the Gildan-owned company no longer makes all of its products in the USA either. If that’s what you are keen on you have to check out the made in USA capsule collection.
