Gildan Activewear Inc. has big plans for American Apparel.

Since buying the iconic L.A. brand at a bankruptcy auction earlier this year, the Canadian maker of T-shirts and underwear has rebuilt inventory and ramped up shipments to wholesalers. It’s now preparing to relaunch the e-commerce website, while also aiming to boost exports and explore retail opportunities.
