China wholesale hoodies and cheap apparel online. Is it the right decision for wholesale distributors to sell clothing that isn’t American Made?
China Wholesale – If you’re looking into becoming a distributor here in the US for wholesale hooded sweatshirts, wholesale tshirts or any type of wholesale fashion, and want the best profit margins, some think China wholesale apparel is the way to go. And when I say cheap wholesale apparel or cheap hooded sweatshirts, I don’t mean the quality, I’m talking about the price. A prime example of an affordable hoodie made in China but still has the unbeatable quality and softness is the AFX4000Z. Made with 100% cotton and 40 singles face yarn this popular hoodie is perfect for screen printing. A lot of other wholesale distributors like American Apparel run their operations here in the US and live by the “Made in America” slogan, but others find that the cost is just way too high to support a profitable wholesale business. I’d have to say that besides their incredible marketing tactics and US brand, American Apparel clothes are cheaply made, don’t last and are way over priced. Almost all distributors that sell here in the US distribute for major brands that are manufactured in China wholesale factories, names like Jiffy Shirts, Shirt Champ, RG Riley, and Blank Apparel, just to name a few.
Starting a new apparel distribution company isn’t easy and it isn’t cheap. But most new wholesale suppliers that plan to distribute blank hoodies, blank sweatshirts and blank t-shirts in the US argue that if they go with China wholesale clothing manufacturers, they cut their production costs by at least 50% . With that money saved, they now have capital to put towards the phase 1 building of their business. Eventually the additional money saved on manufacturing wholesale clothing in China can be put towards hiring employees to increase sales, marketing and distribution. Yes their production dollars went to China but without that possibility of affordable manufacturing, the channels of distribution would not have been created.
