    Default Alternative Apparel

    Has anybody made the switch from using American Apparel to Alternative Apparel? It seems that it's still made in america, but with a softer more vintage feel. Anyone own a shirt or two and could give us the low down?

    i actually just ordered some and they were really nice tshirts. they are softer for sure, a little more fitted, and longer than american apparel. you cant beat the price either. i think they are like 3.90 a piece standard, where as american apparel non-case singles run about 6 bucks.

    Alternative apparel is about an inch longer than american apparel in the size large. but, yeah i think its a pretty safe switch. i had to place an order with them cause american apparel couldnt guarentee their stuff was gonna get to me on time and i needed it quickly. the people who the shirts were for were much happier with alternative apparel (vs. american apparel) on account of how soft the shirts are. oh! and the lady i talked to on the phone was super nice, so thats always a plus!

    manufacturing facilities in five different countries
    Sweat-shop free has been a marketing tactic used by domestic competitors to mislead buyers that all imports are made in sweat-shops. That is simply not the case. We at Alternative Apparel use only the highest quality factories with the highest skilled employees. We are committed to insuring the well being of our employees.
    Thats why they can do it cheaper ... sounds good to me.

    There's this American Apparel store a block from me .. its so stupid... a store full of blank crappy t-shirts that are SO expensive .. more than every other store sells printed shirts for.

    so they appear to be $4, assuming they are giving me wholesale prices, since that is how i logged in.. does anyone know why there are no price breaks at like a dozen, and what size a case is?

    Lithe, sweaty models don't come cheap man. Costs have to be passed on to the consumer...

    We use them more than American because their shipments are dependable. Also, the ladies prefer the longer cut so their beer guts don't hang out.

    I just got off the phone with them. Their pricing is slightly lower thank American Apperal stuff and the case size for Girly shirts and Mens t's are 72 pieces.
