Gildan Super Bowl Commercial

I am sure, like the majority of the nation, you watched the NFL Super Bowl XLVII last weekend where the Baltimore Ravens won against the San Francisco 49ers with a final score of 34-31.  Some people watch the Super Bowl for the football and others watch it for the crazy commercials that air during it.  If you did watch the Super Bowl then no doubt you saw the Gildan commercial that aired.  Gildan is the leading activewear brand in the screenprint business in the United States and Canada.  Not only do they manufacture t-shirts and polo shirts, they are now getting into the underwear and sock industry as well.  They are already a big player in the t-shirt business but now they are trying to become a household name like Hanes and Fruit of the Loom are.  Their commercial that aired during the Super Bowl recently was almost like a coming out party to the rest of the world!

Gildan was founded in Canada in 1984 by the Chamandy family.  At the time, they were managing a children’s clothing manufacturing company and in an effort to reduce costs they decided to produce their own textile.  Their fabric production continued to grow and soon they were outpacing their own demand.  The Chamandy family decided to search for ways to use the extra fabric they were producing.  The screenprint market seemed to be a great opportunity and so they began manufacturing blank t-shirts for printing.

Gildan soon evolved from a fast growing fabric company and eventually became the leader in manufacturing quality basic apparel with their primary business being high volume non-fashion apparel.  Gildan sell t-shirts, fleece and hosiery in large quantities to wholesale distributors like us here at The Adair Group.  If you are looking for quality blank Gildan wholesale t-shirts and other apparel at super low prices we have it!
