I have 50 of the aa shirts and only 2 of the Anvil. I stopped buying when you made the change. Thank you for bringing them back…. Even if for only a limited time.

There is never going to be a universal love for either option. There are too many body types out there. People that are really tall complain the Anvil shirts are too short. People that are really short complain that the AA shirts are too long. People that are super skinny complain that the Anvil shirts are too wide and frumpy. People that have more meat on their bones and lots of curves complain that the AA shirts are too small, tight, and form-fitting.
And apparently most people don't understand this and get all huffy and confused as to why people complain about the fit of the shirts.
Me, personally, I prefer the Anvil shirts because I can actually buy a women's size shirt. The AA shirts at their largest size are still too small and tight for me. The Anvil shirts, while a little odd in their shape, at least allow me to not have a men's neckline choking me, hugging my hips too tight and being too long like the AA ones do when I wear them (and if I go a size larger, then the neckline still annoys me, they are even longer, and I look even frumpier as it is now too baggy but at least doesn't squeeze my hips to death).
So, yeah. That's all I have to say about that.

as others have said, this is a great first step. Now we need the catalog to be available in AA and I will place an order. I lost some weight (yay!) and need replacement of my old favorites in a smaller size! (hint, hint, there is money left on the table)
I just keep buying more and more crap...

At the same time they are wide enough for two kids!!! The shape of those shirts are nothing like human. I hate those shirts. HATE THEM!!
Anyway, is American Apparel any better?
Oh, yes, they are much, much better! They are longer, the collars are narrower, the cotton is so much softer, and the fit is much more realistic and comfortable for a child. I used to buy the woot AA shirts for my cousins and they were much loved, much worn, and very well-fitting. The major thing of which to be aware with the AA kids' shirts is that one should size up, as they run small. So if your child is normally a 4 then purchase a 6 in AA, if a 6 then an 8, and so on.
I was made to love magic, all its wonder to know.
But you all lost that magic, many many years ago.
