For our long time customers, this is a message for you. For new customers, you won't know the difference!
A lot of you know we used to use Next Level apparel tees which offered a great fit and feel. Well over the last year we have slowly made the switch to Bella Canvas and there are a bunch of reasons why we did this.
First off, inventory levels through covid and post covid have become an issue with suppliers and distributors. Which has caused delays in our shipping and production.
Secondly, we have noticed a change in quality and consistency, along with more defects on the shirts we would receive.
Third, Bella Canvas has many styles made in the USA and also made in South America but with US materials. This push to have more American Made products is key for us being a patriotic brand.
Also as of May of 2023, after we had already made the switch to Bella Canvas, another brand uncovered that Next Level was using slave labor in parts of china. Which just confirms that the move we made was a good one to begin with. We no longer use Next Level apparel in our line up.
