Made in USA: American Giant hoodie

» Posted by on Mar 24, 2015 in Featured, MadeInUSA, San Francisco

After my first post on Made In USA, a reader sent an email to point me at a local company (local meaning with a shop in San Francisco) making hoodies, vest, and other nice apparel for the same price as the Gap.

So I ordered one of their hoodies and I was again pleasantly surprised by the quality, the feel and the softness of the garment. The company is American Giant and has factory in South San Francisco and in North Carolina.

There is a level of attention to details that is quite nice, especially for $90 hoodie. The zippers are metal zippers, not the cheap plastic ones.

And a very discreet logo.
