Gildan God Speed

We're working on some new Sideburn hoodies and Ts, but choosing colours from the website colour chart is a bit hit 'n' miss. At midnight last night I ordered a real fabric colour swatch via the anonymous contact button on their website (It's an American company). Come morning, 8 hours 28 minutes later, it's sitting on my doormat in Bristol. I hadn't even downed my morning coffee. BP

cool, B could I repsectfully offer a recommendation? American Apparel brand t shirts & hoodies are far nicer, and will sell better, I speak from experience. Thanks for the cool blog/magazine!

Hello Hye, Thanks for the input, but I beg to differ on the American Apparel stuff. The ads might be good, and the first world production (though Third World countries need jobs too, but the T-shirts are virtually see through - the ones I've seen anyway. GI

Hi Hye,
I also bought some AA Ts for myself as they've got some great colours you don't see anywhere else, but they started coming apart at the seems after only a couple of washes - But recommendations always considered Thanks. BP

I am with Ben and Gary. I am a big AA fan but the quality and sizing is rubbish. Loads of loose threads its a pitty cos they have there ethics right but there quality wrong.

Got one of Max Shaaf's 4Q shirts on a Gildan, and it's one of my faves-good quality and a great fit.
