How American Giant created the best sweatshirt known to man.

1 Sep

You may have read the article in SLATE back in 2012, “This Is the Greatest Hoodie Ever Made”.

It tells the story of American Giant, and how they think about the things we buy and how they are made.

“I thought it would be a polite interview that would go nowhere, but I quickly found American Giant’s story irresistible. For one thing, Winthrop had figured out a way to do what most people in the apparel industry consider impossible: He’s making clothes entirely in the United States, and he’s doing so at costs that aren’t prohibitive.”

Now American Giant is entering the promotion products industry with a partnership with PCNA. Starting this September, American Giant apparel is available with custom imprinting and custom branding of your business logo, and custom artwork.

This is a whole new level of quality and commitment to Made is USA apparel. Take a look at the full American Giant line at PCNA, read over the original 2012 article, and take a moment to think about your brand, your values, and if partnering with branded American Giant items aligns with your company’s goals and values.

If you are interested in Made in the USA products to promote your own business, or if you wish to see some samples, email for information and pricing.

And as always, if you really want to do something sustainable, do not buy promotional products. All products are consumption at one level or another. So if you must buy, 1) Buy local (i.e. made in USA), 2) Buy useful, long lasting items, 3) Buy sustainable/recycled/recyclable products if possible.
