Buying Wholesale Clothing in the UK? A Few Tips to Help You Find the Best Lots

If you run a clothing site, or you are thinking of doing so, then you probably already understand the difficulty involved in finding decent clothes to sell. It can take a relatively long time to source clothes from a wholesaler that you like, and that your customers like too. Because, of course, if you're customers don’t like your clothes, they aren’t going to buy from you.


Today, we have written this article to provide you with a few top tips for finding the best wholesalers and the best wholesale lots in the country. By the time you reach the end of this article, you should have a much better idea about the best places to source your wholesale clothing.


Look for Manchester Wholesalers

In case you didn’t know, Manchester is the historic home of textiles in the UK. During the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, it was huge. It was the go-to place to buy your fashions to sell in shops and market stalls throughout the UK.


This tradition remains largely intact – although it’s much easier for us to access now. We don’t have to ride our horse and cart all the way to Manchester. We can just order online. For this reason, many people have forgotten that Manchester is the place to be – many are buying unaware of the fact that they're buying from a Manchester-based seller.


The point is that if you're stuck for ideas on stock, visit the Manchester fashion wholesalers. They're very much on trend, they sell clothes that people want to buy, and they sell them at the best prices. There’s a lot of competition in Manchester, naturally. This means that the wholesalers reduce their prices in order to compete.


If you're looking to buy wholesale clothing UK, and you don’t know where to start, start with Manchester. You can find these wholesalers online or you can visit the area in person and ask around.


Go to the Tradeshows and Network

In this type of industry, there’s really no option but to network. Networking is the way that you find the best products at the best prices.


The best place to network is at the various fashion trade fairs and event. Event networking is a huge buzzword nowadays, and there’s very good reason for this: it works.


You might be nervous initially, but you need to remember that the people you meet need you as much as you need them. They are also mostly incredibly friendly.


You will also find that you learn invaluable bits of advice from people at these tradeshows. For example, they might have the inside track on the next best-selling wholesale womens clothing range, so you can get in ahead of the rush.


If you’ve never attended such an event, do it. You will usually have to pay to attend, but it’s more than worth it. Remember that you build contacts slowly over time, so it’s unlikely that you'll come away with much the first time you visit, but as you keep visiting these shows, you'll see that you'll keep encountering the same people. This is how you make contacts.
