The differences are many, but I will list the top few:
American Apparel are made in the USA.
Anvil are made in 2nd/3rd world countries. Some of those factories are certified to not be sweatshops, but some are not.
American Apparel sizes run small, the ladies sizing, in particular, runs closer to Junior's sizing than Women's.
Anvil sizing for ladies shirts run larger than average, and they have a very curvy cut - some love it, some hate it.
The sizing charts for both are available on the sale page.
American Apparels are soft, and tend not to shrink too much.
Anvils shrink - a lot, almost all of it in length.
AA neck-holes are smallish and some find them constricting.
Anvil neck holes are comically large and some find them baggy.
Hope this helped.
