I find that a lot of clothes available in market are all very similar in terms of quality and style, but depending on the brand, sell for various price points. Does a leather jacket really need to be $500?
I've been in supply chain and most of the markup has to do with all the middlemen involved in traditional retail models (wholesalers, distributors, retail brands) and a lot of it has to do with the cost to sell a single item (staff, retail stores, celebrity endorsements).
A lot of the products that brands sell are produced by a few ODM/OEM that do all the sourcing and produce the final items (but make very little margin in comparison to the brand). My thought is that if we can buy directly from these manufacturers that would save us a lot of money! Of course, provided that the style and quality are up to standards! The catch would be that there will be no labels or brand involved.

You can go for Oasis. A reputed brand name of USA, Australia and Canada. They are manufacturer and supplier of any kind of uniform. If you need to buy bulk uniform you can definitely go for Oasis Uniform. They provide good quality medical uniform, engineer uniforms, corporate uniform and so on.
I wish leather products were a bit more affordable. They are very expensive and cost a fortune! Especially if you're buying custom made jackets. Most online stores mess up the size and don't even sell real leather products but market them in a way that we're convinced about their quality. I came across an Australian based leather jacket shop. They have decent inventory and offer good prices. Will receive my jacket in a few days and will upload a photo for sure!
Thanks Amelia! I wish leather jackets were more affordable too. I'm extremely picky and I think I've only ever found 1 leather jacket that I like from Reiss. I remember it being $800 USD -.- Couldn't bear to pay so much for something so seasonal even though it is a staple.
I recently went to a trade show and was hoping to find leather manufacturers. Can honestly say...most stuff is PU not much real leather out there or at least not quality ones. Thanks for sharing the link to Leather Jacket Shop! How did the jacket turn out?!
