Designer Apparel Information Guide- “The Guide”

Are you looking for Fendi, Gucci and Prada handbags? Chanel shoes, True Religion, Rock and Republic, Rich and Skinny, or Hudson, clothes by Sean John, Rocawear or Ecko?

  • Have you ever viewed the auctions of people selling high-end designer clothing and wondered… where did they get that?
  • Do you want to know where to buy designer clothes and accessories to sell at auction, on a website, or in a retail store?
  • Do you already have a business selling apparel and want to know how/ where to get better brands?
  • Have you been *scammed* buying designer apparel and want to find a legitimate supplier?
  • Are you looking for designer bags, designer shoes, Paper Denim and Cloth jeans, Citizens of Humanity Jeans, C&C California Tee Shirts, Michael Stars, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Giorgio Armani, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Ellen Tracy, Eileen Fisher, Victoria’s Secret lingerie, Saks Fifth Avenue closeouts, Bloomingdales overstock, Neiman Marcus shelf pulls and returns, Theory, Ella Moss and other brands?

Well, read on:

Of all the companies selling apparel, only a portion sell designer apparel. And only a fraction of those companies sell the kind of brands you are interested in. If I know you, you only want the better brands, the kind of merchandise you see in Macy’s, Bloomindgales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and other better stores.

Am I right?

If you are looking to start a part time or full time business, online or offline, selling designer apparel (and shoes and accessories), then this is the guide for you. I have personally compiled a list of companies that sell designer apparel at below-wholesale prices. Some prices are as low as 6-10% of the original retail price! Yes, that’s right, 6-10% of the original price! Imagine buying a $500 dress for $50!

This guide will tell you what companies to buy from, what they sell and some tips on working with companies that (combined) sell over 100 top designer brands including Marc Jacobs, Prada, Fubu, Sean John, Armani, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and others.

You can find out where to buy authentic Italian designer label clothing, accessories and shoes, designer handbags and many other items. You can also find out where to buy Macy’s and Bloomingdales store overstock, with only a $150 minimum order! AND you can select exactly what you want! No more pallets or gaylords, buying a box of 500 assorted pieces and hoping for the best. Dump those vendors sending you boxes full of Charter Club and Sag Harbor (unless, if course, that’s what you want).

So let’s see… now that you know what I am selling, let me tell you what I am NOT selling…

 

I am not selling a list of thousands of wholesale sources.
Why? Because most of those lists are full of outdated, useless information. Sure, I could send you a list of thousands of companies, but would that be of any value to you?
No, it would not. Who has the time to sort through so much information and separate the crap from the good stuff?
I don’t, do you?

Well the good news is that you do not have to.

This guide focuses on only those companies selling better branded and designer apparel, shoes and accessories. I don’t search the net and just include any company I come across. All companies in my guide are screened and usually come by referral from someone who does or has purchased from them, from personal relationships or as a referral from another jobber. I get emails from companies all the time, asking for inclusion in the guide, and I don’t include companies that I don’t know.

Why am I selling this?

To save you time. If you wanted to invest the time to do the research yourself, and the money on telephone calls, and the footwork to actually visit places in person, then go right ahead. But if you are looking for just a teeny tiny shortcut, then this is for you.
I compiled this list myself. This is not information copied from a wholesale CD or website. These are companies I have contacted personally to find out what brands they sell. And

this list only includes companies that sell designer merchandise.

I’ll tell you something interesting, almost all of the people that buy my guide are skeptical. You know, there are a lot of companies out there selling wholesale this and wholesale that and it’s really nothing more than you could have found using a search engine. That’s not what my guide is. I wrote this guide because I dealt with people who were looking to buy wholesale for quite a while. I spoke with people in depth, eBay sellers, retail store owners, exporters, people with money and no business ideas yet and people with business ideas and no money. And there were common misconceptions, misinformation, mis-everything that people posessed. I didn’t write this guide because I wanted to make a quick buck, I wrote it because there is a lack of information to help someone get started in this business. Most people don’t know where to start, what to do, who to avoid. And that’s what this guide is about. It’s more than just sources, it includes a lot of information to help you improve your business or get one started.

Let me give you an idea of the pricing my customers have been able to receive using the sources in this guide:

  • Victoria’s Secret Bras: $5 and up
  • Blue Cult Jeans: $35-40 a pair
  • Chanel & St. John Suits: 80% off retail
  • Fendi Handbags: starting at $189
  • Tommy Hilfiger t-shirts: $6.50 each
  • Abercrombie & Fitch sweaters: $11 each
  • BCBG Shoes: $15 a pair
  • Diesel Jeans: $22-$25 a pair
  • Earl Jeans: $25-30 a pair
  • Citizens of Humanity Jeans: $45-55 a pair
  • James Perse Separates: $5-15 per piece
  • Bergdorf Goodman overstock: 82% off retail!
  • Gucci neckties: $23 each
  • Giorgio Armani suits: $150 each
  • Ecko Sweaters: $14 each

What you should know (a.k.a. the fine print):

I don’t make any claims that these companies sell to the general public. Some of that stuff that people claim, you know, that anyone can buy wholesale, is just fluff. Many companies require a sales tax ID number or a copy of a business license because they are not in the business of selling to consumers. Some do not, but some will.
And here is one more thing you should know: I personally compiled this guide and contacted very single company in it. So I know that you can get good deals with this guide. Now, every company does not always have an opportunistic deal; sometimes it is a matter of timing and patience. But with perseverance you can find the deals—they are there.

You can also use this guide as a starting point. As you speak with different people, work with different companies, attend the trade shows, you will uncover more information on your own. Most of these companies do not advertise on the Internet because they do not have to. And those that do often have very simple (or ugly) websites—you would never know that there was a valuable, multi-million dollar company behind the website.

Now here is what you are thinking:

  • I don’t need to pay anyone for information, most anything I need I can find on the Internet.
    True, but if you already had the information you need, you would not have read this far. The bottom line is time. How much time do you have? If you figure that you would spend 10 hours finding out everything that is in this guide, then that’s about $3 per hour. If your time is not worth $3 per hour, then do the research. If your time is valuable, buy the guide.

And the other thing most people don’t realize is the overwhelming majority of companies on the Internet are brokers. They saw an ad, copied it, marked up the price, and are looking for a buyer. You want to deal with a company that owns the merchandise. I can get you there.

I remember talking to a retired industry executive once who said, quite bluntly, “You’re never going to get anywhere until you get off the internet. This is not how these companies do business, this is not how it works, you need to turn off your computer and get on the phone or pound the pavement.” It was a bitter pill to swallow, but it was the honest truth. People think they can source online, buy online and sell online. And with a few exceptions (because, of course, there are opportunistic people who see the potential and have capitalized on it) you just can’t do that. In fact, some people think they can buy entirely on the internet, and it just doesn’t work that way. So, if the internet is your only source, it’s a limited source.

  • I probably won’t find tons of sources for merchandise Also true, but how many do you need? If you find one, two or three companies that you can buy from, then it is worth the money. A retailer that deals with tons of vendors is called Wal Mart. You only need a handfull.
  • I can buy a wholesale guide for less
    True, but again, it’s quality, not quantity that counts. If you are the type of person whose primary concern is price, then you are going to have a hard time in this business. Why? Well I cover that in my guide.If you want to spend $15 on some Microsoft Word document compiled by someone who searched Google for “wholesale”, then go right ahead.I don’t have a lot of fluff, no sales hype, just honest, straightforward information. And if that is what you are looking for, then buy the guide.

    We received the guide a couple of days ago! We’ve both read it cover to cover and highlighted the things that we should remember. Honestly, I have to say “YOU RULE”!!! Thanks so much! The information you provided was most certainly worth cost. Best money we ever spent.

    I just wanted to say thank you for all the valuable information in your information guide. You have saved me hours and hours and hours of time and frustrations. The information is a real eye opener! Thanks so much.

    Hi there,
    Well since you sent this you have prompted me to send the e-mail intended a couple of weeks ago. I love your book! Very well written. Great information. Frankly between your e-mails back and forth with me (since I could not down load) and the book, I think you should be a comedian! You have an awesome sense of humor! Thanks for putting it out there for us novices.

    I recently invested in your e-Book (yesterday.) I have to say I was very skeptical about it, as I have been ‘taken’ a few times buying information. I mulled over it for a few days and decide that in order to understand this business I have to take some risks. Well it was worth every d*mn dime! Thanks for being candid throughout your book, there seems to be so very little of that now a days.

    Hey,
    Thank you for this…very insightful for the FIRST NEWSLETTER! Purchased your book a while ago, but haven’t had a chance (actually $) to do anything with it. I am glad I have the info at my fingertips when the time comes. I have been selling on eBay since there were MAYBE 20 pieces of clothing on. You are right about thinking outside the eBay box…it’s true about all categories. Thanks for the “kick in the pants”

    I’m starting a small business in a few months selling off-price shoes and I’m in the process of doing tons of research before I spend a dime. Your
    guide is just the thing I’ve been looking for – the information is invaluable! Thanks! :)

    Since you have no Testimonial link. I’d Just like to thank you, I just received your booklet and just the few companies I’ve contacted so far have proven that ordering from you was the best investment I’ve made in this business to date! Thank you so much!

    I purchased your guide with some skepticism but have to say I was pleased with the content and valuable information you’ve provided!

    What you will receive:

    You will receive a downloadable Adobe Acrobat PDF file (please make sure you have Adobe Acrobat Reader), that details the companies you can buy from, the type of merchandise they carry, the brands they carry and tips on dealing with them. You will also receive useful information about buying designer merchandise and finding other sources. I also include a bunch of information on avoiding scams, selling on eBay and all sorts of other stuff that’s actually quite informative and useful.

    AND, you will also receive periodic updates as we contact more reputable suppliers, as well as updates when we find out a supplier has a popular product.

    You will not receive a list of websites you can buy from. In fact, although most of the companies in our guide have websites, we do not list them. And there’s a good reason for this: they don’t do business online and don’t update their websites and you would disregard them without giving them a chance.
