American apparel - thumbs up

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I had been meaning to check out this store and had a chance to stop in last Friday, down on Spring St. in NYC. I was thoroughly impressed with the place. Before I even get into the goods, I like their corporate goals, namely: 1. non sweatshop labor 2. made in the USA 3. progressive day care/health insurance policies 4. comittment to the environment It has been a quest for me to find great tshirts. I like them fitted, but not too fitted. I like them short, but not too short. I like them soft, but not too thin. I found the perfect tshirt in size M, fitted short sleeve model. I have no affiliation with the company, just thought id give them a quick review. My wife was with me, she was similarly impressed. She walked out of there with a pair of cotton drawstring pants, lots of really fitted t's, and much to my delight, a really sexy pair of cotton boyshort underwear.

I like their products a lot. Their t-shirts are high quality and stylish. Perfect for custom silk-screens. That they have progressive business practices is a bonus. Their web-site; www.americanapparel.net

I've heard nothing but good things about AA tees. Also, I believe that most of the smaller, 'underground' designers, who mainly produce screen-printed T's, use AA shirts. Even threadless.com advertises which of their shirts are made with American Apparel T's.

Every single independent designer I have met uses American Apparel tees. Some of them even have a deal with AA to get them tagless so they can put their own tag on it.

Had to bump this after reading this Malcom Gladwell article on AA. Very cool.
