An American Based clothing manufacturer that is unfortunately popular with the modern hipster community.
American Apparel t-shirts are noticeable better quality and fit than $4 Wal*Mart shirts in addition to producing excellent screen printing results. They are under fire from people that have never felt how soft and light an American Apparel shirt is and people that do not know how a t-shirt should properly fit. Their t-shirts are worth the price you pay; frugal individuals can find AA t-shirts for under $10.
American Apparel shirts are soft and light, not cheap and rough like Wal*Mart, Hanes or Gildan t-shirts shirts.
