    Hi,

    I'm looking for a clothing supplier in the UK, to supply men's clothing at trade, for my online store. I'm trying to develop the brand but not looking to buy stock. The ideal situation is a small stock holding with drop ship options. We sell the casual Dapper look with waistcoat, blazer look mixed with jeans or trousers etc.

    If anyone has contacts or suggestions, I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you for your time.

    Mark

    I would guess that on a highly specialised field like yours, there would be little interest in competitors who hold stock in supplying you. and you may find that most drop shipping companies are holders of items that have a larger market appeal

    Well, good luck with that one - what you are saying is, I have no money.

    The very first thing ANYBODY (anybody normal that is!) will do when you approach them, is to find out if you are credit-worthy. i.e. does this person have any money?

    I like what you have got so far and I can see what direction you are heading in, but I fear you are going to have to sign up to some arrangement that will entail financial commitment. I really think your steam-punk furniture will sell.

    It might be a small help if you spell your company name correctly OP, just a thought. In your signature on the forum.
