The American Companies That Aren’t Actually American Anymore

American Apparel

American Apparel was founded in 1989 and became one of the most trending clothing stores in America as the name was an advertisement of itself. American Apparel was known for being made in the United States, but after the company had a rough year in 2015, it was bought out by a Canadian company, Gildan Activewear, in 2017 for $88 million.

American Apparel has made a comeback after Gildan Activewear bought the company, but the only difference now is that Canadians own them. There have been several companies that have been in the same boat as American Apparel.
