Canadian low-cost apparel basics brand Gildan Activewear, who acquired the LA-based company at a bankruptcy auction earlier this year, has announced plans of keeping the label’s website alive, where shoppers will be able to sift through an assortment of products trademark to American Apparel’s legacy, including jeans.
