PEOPLE KEPT ASKING US HOW WE CAN CHARGE SO LITTLE FOR OUR SUITS, SO WE MADE THIS VIDEO.
WE GET THIS QUESTION A LOT: HOW CAN YOU SELL HIGH-QUALITY SUITS FOR UNDER $100
OK, so this is how and why we did it:
We used to be one of the companies that manufactured suits for numerous prominent designer brands. (FYI: Most brands get their suits made by outside sources and have their labels sewn on.) The designer suits we manufactured were often marked up 10 times by the time they reached the customer.
We firmly believe that the best, most stylish suits should be accessible to everyone and that looking your sharpest should not cost a fortune. In March 2015, we decided to start selling directly to retail customers on our website.
By manufacturing our own suits, we cut out any middleman; by operating only online, we eliminate brick-and-mortar expenses. In the end, the savings are passed on to you.
