When American Giant introduced its hooded sweatshirt in 2012 it quickly gained a reputation as being hard to find, difficult to order, months in waiting and the best hoodie in the world.
Whoa. “In the world” is a tall order but that was what some folks called it: the best hoodie ever made. A hooded sweatshirt aka a hoodie, tapped as insanely popular and the greatest ever. For a hoodie, or any clothing, that’s a pretty good bit of praise.
Since then, the accolades have continued to roll in and the popularity continues for American Giant sweatshirts, shirts and bottoms. The company decided to do some things differently than others in order to maximize input to its apparel and focus on customers.
— No middlemen! American Giant has no retail stores, distributors or other layers between the product and consumer. It sells its apparel online through its website.
— The 100-percent cotton apparel is thicker than others you’ll find. The zip-up hooded sweatshirt is heavier and keep you warmer while looking stylish. American Giant CEO Bayard Winthrop worked on the design for about eight months. The shirts and sweatshirts have an athletic cut and look great; however, if you like a loose fit then you may want to order a size larger.
— American Giant apparel is made entirely in the United States, with manufacturing plants in California and the Carolinas. Materials are sourced in the U.S., shipped to the manufacturing plants and then made for consumers.
