The iconic clothing brand was saved from bankruptcy earlier this year and has just relaunched with a new online store.

Good news for the 5SOS boys - they can once again stock up on all the American Apparel underwear their little hearts desire!

The clothing brand, which filed for bankruptcy in 2015, closed all its remaning stores earlier this year after falling heavily into debt. Canadian t-shirt company Gildan Activewear then bought the rights to the label for $88 million (£68m) in February and have now relaunched it as an online store.

The site will feature AA classics as well as brand new items. However, there will be one key difference from the earlier days as the clothes will no longer be made exclusively in the USA, a signature feature of the brand since its inception.

Yes, while some, more expensive items will still be fully American, the majority will be manufactured where Gildan currently produces its other clothing items in Central America and the Carribean to save on cost.

Check out the full selection of new items over on the AA website here.
