Gildan 42000 Performance Wear – Inventory on Hold

Posted by May on 1st Oct 2019

Due to unanticipated manufacturing issues, we’ve unfortunately had to place a hold on several products in the Gildan Performance series.

Gildan has given the following information regarding the inventory freeze:

‘In late 2018, selected Gildan Performance styles were transitioned to side seam construction. We recently discovered a quality issue with some lots produced during that transition, and those lots have displayed higher than expected width shrinkage during the screen printing process. Namely, during the flashing and ink curing phases where temperatures are the highest.’

The styles affected by this issue (all in the performance wear category) are the 42000, 42000B, 42000L, 42400, 42400B, 42400L, 42700 & 44S30.

At this point there is no confirmed date of when we can start selling these products again. For other performance products, we recommend looking at the Gildan 46000 and 47000 series, as well as the products we offer by New Balance.

If you need any assistance with product selection, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!

We apologize for the inconvenience.
