If you stay in America, then you might be quite familiar with the famous brand American Apparel. The brand is based out of the United States of America and deals in both retail and whole sale products. The company deals in products for men, women and kids and the products are specially manufactured in Los Angeles in terms of design, cut and sewing. The headquarters and the factory of the American Apparel company are located in Downtown, Los Angeles, with a massive factory size of 1.5 million square feet manufacturing space. The space is equivalent to 26 American football fields. Just imagine how massive it is? They employ a total of 4600 skilled employees and target to manufacture 90,000 t-shirts per day, which they complete in a whole day time. The denim factory of the company manufactures a total of 1000 jeans per day. Their technology and craftsmanship is so fast that a normal regular t-shirt takes around 15 seconds to sew and two quality checks by the supervisor to be declared just perfect to be sent to the retailer. The manufacturing, retailing and distribution is done under the same roof, which makes work a lot more easier.
