      Distributors and Wholesale of branded mens underwear

      Hi Guys, I am new to the forum (and retail) and wanted some advice on buying wholesale mens underwear for a UK shop.

      We are interested in selling brands like Calvin Klein, Aussie Bum, BjornBorg, Diesel, Emporio Armarni, Super Dry, Ted Baker, Tommy Hilfiger, Paul Smith & G STar.

      Would we need to be an authorised seller in the UK and buy stock from them direct or are there wholesale outlets?

      How do we steer clear of the fake market?

      Can anyone point us in the direction of a reputable wholesaler that can supply the products we need.

      Any other information would be most appreciated.

      Thanks in advance.

      Thanks for the reply.

      Is there an underwear supplier that sells all the latest ranges of the major brands?

      I also notice that there are many ranges of Calvin Klein underwear on Chinese directories. Are these really genuine items? Are they licenced sellers of these branded items?

      Hi,

      You can find wholesalers that sell all the brands of underwear, however they will be few, because brands generally require buying stock of their full ranges.

      You could try contacting the brands directly, for example Calvin Klein at https://www.warnaco.com/WarnacoManual/login.cfm?CFID=11123860

      No never buy branded goods from China, most Chinese directories list counterfeiters. If you have an appealing business model, contact the brands directly and they will be more than willing to supply you or direct you to one of their authorized brand distributors. If however you are looking to sell online through online marketplaces like eBay and Amazon, you won't get any attention from the brands and instead will need to source overstocks as and when they become available.

      Hi Shwaun,

      Is your business incorporated? Do you supply paperwork?

      reference the Calvin Klein boxers from China stay away ... I bought a sample lot and they were poor quality and shrunk so much that a 10 yr old would struggle to get in!!!
