Before the age of wholesalers selling clothes on the Internet directly to consumers, buying wholesale jeans directly from the manufacturer was the only option for store owners. Now retailers and shoppers are one mouse click away from bulk discounters who will sell wholesale designer jeans at discounts of 80 per cent below retail prices. As the prices of trendy designer jeans rise to more than £195 a pair, buying jeans wholesale is not only preferred over retail for shoppers, but is now considered a necessity by some.
Retail store owners and bargain shoppers both search for major discounts on popular jeans such as Red Monkey, True Religion and 7 For All Mankind. The Los Angeles Fashion District, New York's Garment District and Atlanta's Apparel Mart are three popular destinations where consumers and retailers can purchase wholesale designer jeans.
According to Wikipedia, selling wholesale clothing, which is referred to as jobbing, allows wholesalers to buy their stock from manufacturers and sell their merchandise to professional retailers for a discounted price. Store owners who sell jeans buy popular merchandise at a discount of at least 40 per cent below the suggested retail price. Without the heavy discount, the retailer could not produce a profit from the sale of the jeans directly to the consumer.
With celebrities and fashion trendsetters such as Christian Audigier and Beyonce Knowles launching designer jeans it's difficult to determine what denim styles the public will purchase next. Denim styles include cargo, skinny, boot cut, flared, high-waist, hipsters, straight-leg, low rise and slim. Wholesale designer jeans are available for men, women and children. Because wholesale designer jeans vary in shape, construction and colour, a buyer should watch current fashion trends to please their customers' wide-ranging denim preferences and options.
Wholesale designer jeans are sold in lots or parcels. Wholesalers rarely sell jeans individually unless there are sample sizes available for sale at the end of the season. Before buying jeans in bulk make a list of all the style numbers and sizes to prevent errors or oversights. All wholesalers do not carry the same denim clothing lines, and all sales are usually final.
Most wholesalers require a retail sales license and a federal tax identification number to purchase merchandise at a reduced rate. For example, Atlanta's Apparel Mart does not allow entrance into the wholesale sales area without a valid retail business license, business card or proof of store ownership. Beware of buying wholesale designer jeans on the Internet without determining whether the product is genuine.
