I use AA for most of my T-shirts since I like the quality and the feel, come in a wide variety of colors and since they are made in the USA (a strong component of my line). It'd be sad if I had to use a "made in China" brand for my T-shirts...The Los Angeles-based clothing maker, which in Illinois has locations in Chicago, Evanston, Oak Brook and Schaumburg, said it may default on loan agreements with its lenders, cited ongoing weakness in its business.
If that happens, the company said it may not have sufficient liquidity to stay in business for the next 12 months.
I do..My local suppliers main line is American Apparel..if they fold my local supplier may too.well, thanks for the information. But really, who cares
This would be very unfortunate. Another casualty of the poor economy and lackluster recovery. Very sad for the company and especially the employees.
That would be a poorly managed supplier. A company that knows what they are doing will carry more than one brand and when one goes out of business they will push another as their main one.I do..My local suppliers main line is American Apparel..if they fold my local supplier may too.
Actually, it would be unfair to blame this one on the recession.Another casualty of the poor economy and lackluster recovery.

Hows that saying go, "don't put all yur eggs in one basket"I do..My local suppliers main line is American Apparel..if they fold my local supplier may too.
well said SolmuActually, it would be unfair to blame this one on the recession.....
lol looks like my post not all of it just the beginging.lol. weird..I don't know about anyone else, but if American Apparel were to go under It would be a terrible thing. American Apparel shirts are high quality shirts and anybody that doesn't think so, does not care about the details. The shirts fit well, they're an extremely soft feel and the colors, like black for instance, hold true through several washes. Alstyle is a good brand too, but sub-par to AA and have you washed a dark colored Alstyle Shirt.....Black turns into sort of black. On top of that, most of their stuff is imported. At least American Apparel are MADE IN THE USA!!!!! Even if some people think that, "they're too trendy" or "overrated," why would any real AMERICAN want ANY american manufacturer to go under. It's just bad all around.
