In January 2017 Gildan Activewear acquired the brand American Apparel. Certain styles are being discontinued other styles are being made outside of the USA and some styles are still being made here in the USA. SKU’s ending in W stand for world and are not made in the USA. Stock is still being sorted so orders may contain mixed bag original USA made pre-acquisition and newly manufactured USA made. Additionally as there is some remaining original stock being filled in with newly manufactured product there could be some slight but noticeable differences in the same product SKU size to size color to color.
