To Our Valued Customers,

Last week we joined a coalition of domestic manufacturers who have come together to address the massive shortage of medical masks facing the country.

Over the last seven days, we’ve worked to retool our North Carolina facilities and retrain our team of remarkable seamstresses. Effective today we are making HHS-certified medical masks and distributing them to the front line medical personnel that are confronting this crisis. Our initial target is 35,000 masks per week, and we expect to be climbing aggressively from there. We are deeply grateful to our NC team of seamstresses, supervisors, and managers who have stepped in to help–they are true heroes themselves.

We ask for your patience and understanding as we stop production of American Giant products in support of this effort. You may experience some out of stocks in the coming weeks, but we trust that you will understand. Right now we need masks more than sweatshirts!

As always, we are grateful to you, our incredible customers, who allow us to be in a position to help.


Be Giant,



Bayard
