I am looking to source a trusted, reliable and competitively priced manufacturer, wholesaler or wholesale distributor that can provide a range of Men’s Formal Suits and Accessories.
I am in in the process of opening a men’s Formal Wear store in conjunction with a bridal store in the same premises.
To to begin with I’d like to keep the range relitevely small and simplistic with popular colours such as black, grey, navy being prominent. To begin with I’d like to keep the range to a maximum of 6 different variations. I’d like to offer the same suits in different fits (ultra slim, slim, regular etc).
The style of suits on offer should be a mixture of classic designs, black tie suits (Penguin) etc. I am open to understanding what is available in terms of material and the finish of suits. I’m also flexible in terms of number of pockets, breasted / double breasted, 3 piece suit etc…
id like the range to cater for both adult and children sizes. I’d like the supplier to be able to offer mix and match suits and trousers sizes and not be confined to ordering a 1 size fit suit.
In regards to cost, I’d like to offer my customers an entry prices suit at the lowest cost, but also provide a mid range option for them. Due to the location of the shop I would not want to offer anything of premium quality as it’ll be difficult to sell at the required price point.
In regards to quantities my preference would be to have the option to take delivery of sample suits that are on offer that can be returned FOC before a commitment on quantities are made. Once I have approved the suits I’d expect my initial stock order to be for around 250 suits in 6 different styles.
i am aiming to open the store in June/July 2019 and would require samples to be approved and bulk delivered before this date.
I am not restricted as to where the suits are manufactured but would need to understand what lead times would be associated with replenishment orders and replacements and also if there is an account manager that can be contacted for support.
Further to the above I am also intending on stocking men’s Formal footwear and accessories such and belts, socks, braces etc. Preferably if this could be sourced through one supplier it would be a benefit.
