Wholesale Clothing: What to Know Before You Shop

Clothing stores operate by being the middleman between customers and the manufacturer. Wholesale clothing works on a similar basis however they are able to get clothing much cheaper than normal stores because they buy clothes from manufacturers that are overstocked or leftovers from prior seasons. These factors as well as the fact that wholesale clothing businesses buy in bulk results in much lower costs for the consumer. In this way, wholesale clothing companies are cutting out the middleman and getting their customers the lowest possible price for the clothing they want. Below are some things you should know about wholesale clothing before you shop. 

Some items can only be sold in packs

With such a large inventory, wholesalers will often only sell packs of clothing to ensure that they will sell all the inventory they buy. As wholesaler’s main audience is small clothing stores to supply, these packs are helpful. For the average shopper, however, you may not want to buy multiple of the same item of clothing. This can also be a good idea if you are buying an essential item of clothing that you will wear frequently as you will have to do laundry less and you can keep the items as backups in case something happens to one of them. You can also gift the extra garments during your next family holiday.

You get a better deal when you buy multiple

When you buy in bulk from wholesalers, they will often give you a deal. These deals mainly come as a reduced cost per individual item. For example, if you bought a wholesale clothing item such as denim the single unit price would be around $17 which is a pretty good deal. However, when you buy 8 pairs the unit price then becomes $11 per pair. This is a savings of $6 for 8 pairs of jeans saving you a total of $48 and still costing less than a single pair of high-end designer jeans. While buying in bulk is not for everyone it is a great way to save money in the long run.


Everyone knows that the sale section of online retailers is where you go to get the best deal but that couldn’t be any truer with wholesale clothing. On top of already low prices wholesalers offer by cutting out the middleman, these sales further discount these items making them the lowest you will find anywhere. These items tend to be almost out of stock where wholesalers want to get them sold to make more room for new incoming inventory. Often times the sale page offers packs of clothing for much less than you could buy a single item of the same quality. If you are looking for a bargain you won’t find anywhere else, then sales at wholesale clothing stores are a must.

Best place to buy denim

Denim has been a hot item ever since the 1960s. As such a versatile item of clothing, it is easy to see why it is so desirable. Denim can be worn with almost anything including t-shirts, tank tops, and much more. Often denim carries hefty price points but with wholesalers, these products are made very affordable. The ability to buy at almost the cost of manufacturing is a big draw for many people to shop wholesale for more expensive textiles. 

Just like any kind of shopping, it is always better to be prepared by doing research on the kind of shopping before you go out and shop. Knowing the ins and outs of the business will allow you to get the best deal for whatever you need. By knowing the basics of wholesale clothing and how the wholesalers work, it will allow you to make better purchasing decisions and be an informed consumer.
