A recent announcement was made that American Apparel will be returning after it’s brief shutdown following a sleuth of bad press and filing for bankruptcy.
The brand was bought out by Canadian sportswear company Gildan Activewear earlier this year. The CEO stated that American Apparel will be making a return – but only online.
There is a big distinction to be made after the buyout, however…. American Apparel products will no longer be produced in, well, America. The merchandise will be made alongside other Gildan Activewear products in countries like Costa Rica, Honduras and areas of the Caribbean, says Dazed and Confused.
If that’s not a deal breaker, keep an eye out for the online store release in two weeks.
