What You Need to Know About Buying Wholesale Clothes For Profit

We are all looking for a way to make a little extra cash in today’s difficult economy. One area of industry that rarely suffers from recession, is clothing. After all, we all need clothes; no matter how bad things become economically clothing will always be a necessity. However, if you want to make a profit from selling clothes, then you need to ensure that you have adequate margins. Buying clothes in bulk is the best way to ensure that you are able to put a margin on your clothing. However, there are a few things that you need to know, and we will discuss these below.

Buy Quality ItemsYou may be starting out, but you need to ensure that you buy the highest quality products that your margins can afford you. This may mean that you make less of a profit than you anticipate initially, but it also means that you are more likely to benefit from return custom.

Once a customer has bought products from you, and they realize that they are of a good quality, they will often return to buy more. In business, it is well known that it is far easier to retain customers, than it is to find new customers. Up to 90% of any business, revenue is derived from return custom, and so it is vital to make a good first do this by purchasing good quality and attractive clothing.

Buy Fashionable ItemsThe majority of your customers will be concerned with fashion. This is true regardless of the particular demographic to which you are tailoring: although, depending on the demographic, what is considered fashionable will vary. Therefore, it is important that you understand your audience and that you buy clothes tailored to the people whom you wish to attract. For example, if you want to attract a young, female, audience, make sure that you stock up on pretty ladies dresses wholesale. Be sure to read the fashion magazines so that you can choose clothes and dresses that are on trend. It is ok to go back a couple of seasons, because although high-end fashions change each season, high street fashions tend to stick around for a few years. For example, maxi dresses made a big comeback in summer 2012, and they are still popular in summer 2013.

Buying accessories that go with the clothes that you have in stock is also a good idea. This will add to your source of revenue, as people will often want to buy something that matches their clothing. For instance, if you buy in ladies dresses wholesale, it is worthy you also buying in necklaces, handbags, sandals, etc. anything that will go with the dresses you have in stock. For men’s clothing, it may be a little harder, but buying hats, satchels, wallets and scarves (depending on your stock – you do not want to buy a scarf to go with jogging bottoms) will usually do the trick.…

What You Need to Know About Buying Designer T-shirts?

In the past men were fairly unconcerned with fashion, today, however, this is no longer the case: men are equally concerned with their appearance as women. Unfortunately, many men are lacking in fashion knowledge. One area in which men seem to make the most mistakes is in buying and wearing designer t-shirts. If this sounds familiar to you, then fear now, because below we provide the guidelines to buying designer t-shirts. Follow our advice and we know you will soon be fashion ready.

Choose a Style that Suits Your Tastes and the Rest Will Follow

Many people see a style that they like, but instead choose a style that is ‘in’, or which their friend or girlfriend has recommended. This is the wrong approach to fashion because, usually, if you like a style it is because it suits who you are, and if it suits who you are it will look good. You will carry yourself with greater confidence and this in itself will make you look attractive. Our first rule, then, is to follow your instincts. You must follow this rule for your entire wardrobe and you will find that your various items of clothing are relatively uniform in style, making it easier to match your outfits.

Make Sure You Wear a Fitted T-Shirt

There really is only one type of cut that is appropriate when it comes to your t-shirt, and that is a fitted cut. Unless you wear a fitted cut, you will look less than perfect. The fit will enhance your body, no matter what your shape – even if you are overweight, it is still better to wear a t-shirt that is well fitting.

There are a few rules to ensure that your t-shirt is fitted. Firstly, the seam should rest midway on your shoulder. If it is too far to the back then the t-shirt is too big, if it is too close to the front, then it is too small.

Some manufacturers are better at creating fitted t-shirts. For example, Superdry t-shirts are particularly renowned for their great fit. Therefore, if you are in doubt, then you should stick to the brands that are tried and tested, such as Superdry t shirts; otherwise, you may find it fairly difficult to find a t-shirt that fits.

Wear a High Quality Material

Quality always looks better than non-quality clothing. Quality does not necessarily mean greater expense; there are some very good clothes on the cheaper end of the designer market that are exceptionally well built. You should try to wear t-shirts with a high concentration of cotton; 100% is the best, but you should certainly not go for a t-shirt with any less than 80% cotton, unless you are choosing another natural fibre. The rule is that manmade materials are not yet as good as natural fibres and you need a minimum of 80:20, natural: synthetic if you want your t-shirt to look good (the same goes with any types of clothing).…
