The wholesale apparel and decoration business operates on volume. For this reason there are typically price breaks for larger orders. Blankstyle offers discounts based on the quantity you purchase. To keep the ordering process simple it’s not always apparent where the most efficient quantity breaks are for your order. Please use this blog as a guide to help you order efficiently.

Blank Apparel

When purchasing blank apparel your price breaks are based on the quantity per brand you purchase.

Los Angeles Apparel–Wholesale Tees for Today’s Printers

Los Angeles Apparel

There’s no question that the Los Angeles Apparel wholesale line is hitting the industry with a bang. “What’s very important is consistency”, says Dov, and vertical integration is the key to keeping this consistency alive.

Blankstyle had a chance to sit down with founder Dov Charney to discuss everything from his new line’s inspirations to US manufacturing, and the ups and downs of his famous past endeavors. As the original founder of American Apparel, there was lots of ground to cover. Check out the full interview here!

Though he’s no longer with the company, Dov plans to stay the course when it comes to US manufacturing and working conditions, and right some of the wrong turns made in the past. “I want to build a world class garment manufacturing company. I want there to be a huge commitment to advanced manufacturing. I want to continue our previous commitment to  fair treatment of workers and fair wages. We want to be an industry leader once again.”

In a time when more and more companies are moving production overseas, Dov continues his dedication to manufacturing strictly in the US. “When I say ‘made in the USA’ I’m talking about down to the yarns–it’s grown from the earth of America.”

Los Angeles Apparel Wholesale

From quality control to customer relations, vertical integration and keeping his workers close is what makes it all possible. He believes that paying a fair wage to his employees doesn’t harm the overall financial outcome, and actually helps the company thrive in the long term.

All of the Los Angeles Apparel employees from the factory to the office have worked for him under American Apparel for anywhere from 5-25 years. To show his dedication to them, the back of each t-shirt tag shows a picture of the specific worker who sewed the shirt.

Los Angeles Apparel Wholesale

From Left: Los Angeles Apparel HF07 Fleece Pullover, FF01 Poly Cotton Tee, HF09 Heavyweight Hoodie

Although he’s holding on to the core values he held with his previous company, Dov now veers in a different direction when it comes to style and aesthetic. “I do believe tighter garments are moving out and looser, more structured fabrics are coming in.”

The 1801 Garment Dyed Tee is something Dov sees as the new face of today’s t-shirt, and expects it to be a Los Angeles Apparel top seller. This garment is sewn two inches bigger than the standard US t-shirt spec. It’s tightly knit and weighs in at over 6 ounces—something almost unheard of in today’s premium market where 3- 4oz jersey is the norm.

Los Angeles Apparel Wholesale

The Los Angeles Apparel 2017 Tee features wide sleeves and a full cut.

Wide sleeves and a generous body create a more relaxed, over sized look for both men and women. Nostalgic ads from the 80’s and early 90’s come to mind when trying to pinpoint Los Angeles Apparel’s creative direction.

Charney showed us another one of his latest creations– a 14oz heavyweight hoodie described as a “survival piece.” The new line is steering far from American Apparels thin and lightweight line packed with tri-blends, modal and semi sheer jerseys. When asked if he believes he’s predicting the trends or if he’s actually creating the trends, Dov simply answers “both.”

Los Angeles Apparel Wholesale

For those customers simply wanting the tried and true lightweight staples, Los Angeles Apparel has those too. The new line offers recreations of some of American Apparel’s most popular and best-selling styles down to the fabrication, coloring and fit. Check out the 20001 100% cotton tee for the 2001 comparable, or the FF0053 Infant Raglan for the BB053 comparable! Everything from Track Shorts to Toddler Baseball Tees are available and in stock today. And of course, all made in the US!

Los Angeles Apparel Wholesale

Machine maintenance at the South Central manufacturing facility

To this day Dov is very proud of what he’s created throughout his career, and he’ll continue to be a pioneer in USA-made apparel. Going forward, he’ll use the experience he’s accumulated throughout the years to perfect the process, and continue providing a premium product line for retail and wholesale customers alike.

Categories for US Made, Unisex, Kids, etc. show a scaled-back version of the line, featuring only the top heavy hitters that customers know and love.

UPDATE 2/27/2017

In a conference call on Feb. 23rd, Chief Executive Officer Glenn Chamandy announced that the American Apparel brand will begin production soon using a mix of contracted US producers and Gildan’s own manufacturing plants outside the country.

The new owners plan to continue producing some key wholesale styles in the US, while other items offered in the line will be produced at their facilities in the Caribbean and Central America. Distribution will be handled via Gildan’s vast network of warehouses.

Chamandy, the head of the company, is optimistic about the future of American Apparel, and looks forward to expanding the brand into new international markets. “We have huge interest from all of our international customers to carry this brand,” he said. “We’re going to continue to support our core Made in the USA business, but we’re also going to offer product where they couldn’t compete before.”

In a statement released on the brand’s wholesale website, Gildan elaborates:

“Gildan and American Apparel share a vision that owning the factories and building responsible practices and sustainable solutions into the manufacturing process is the way to do it right.”

“We anticipate [the transition] to be completed late February.”

1/26/2017

If you haven’t noticed, the American Apparel Bankruptcy has put production on a temporary hiatus. The iconic brand has filed for bankruptcy and is in the process of being bought out by another company. Manufacturing of all items has been suspended for now and with no ETA on when production will pick up, there’s still a lot of questions left unanswered. But here’s the good news–American Apparel will still be around for all your screen printing needs going forward, and stock is still available for the time being.

The popular US-Made brand sold the company in January after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy back in November 2016. With over $177M in debt, the company was unable to turn things around after persisting legal battles and another bankruptcy back in October 2015. The sale brought retail giants Amazon and Forever 21 to the table, and in the end a bid for $88M was accepted from Canadian-based Gildan Activewear.

Gildan, another big name in the wholesale market, has indicated they will assume some of the current manufacturing operations. The company recently acquired Alstyle apparel and has since kept the brand’s manufacturing in Los Angeles. More specific plans are set to be released during a conference call on Feb. 23rd. They expressed no interest in purchasing the company’s retail stores, and with no other buyers on the horizon, doors are closing for good at brick-and-mortar locations across the globe.

With industry experience spanning spanning 30+ years, Gildan is expected to fully pivot the brand towards the wholesale market and dedicate it’s resources to serving that consumer base. It’s unsure how much of the current line will remain after the American Apparel Bankruptcy, but if you’re a wholesale buyer or screen printer who’s had trouble buying American Apparel in the past, things just might get a little easier.

Warehouse closures for both retail and wholesale products have already begun in Southern California–including massive layoffs at the famous American Apparel factory in Downtown Los Angeles. Because of this, stock levels represented on your distributor’s website may not be 100% accurate or up-to-date. Only one thing’s for sure–if you need popular shirts like the 2001, BB401 or BB453–be sure to stock up now while you can!

Blank Dad Hats are the perfect canvas for your brand’s logo or quirky designs. And with so many wholesale dad hats to choose from, it’s easy to find the perfect fit. Often made with 100% cotton twill, some are brushed or sueded for a textured finish. Many vintage dad hats have been washed to create a weathered look. Straps usually come in self fabric but some styles like the Adams LP101 offer leather straps and brass buckles for a more polished look. More variations also available with organic cotton, two-tone colors, sandwich bills and even distressed Dad Hats!
