The Clothing Industry and E Commerce: The Click Of The Mouse

The clothing industry in this modern age has changed to where the click of a mouse is king. There are as many websites to buy clothes as there are colors in a rainbow, and it’s only growing. Although e-commerce and men’s clothing has not engaged too much with the selling community as much, for Western civilization is honestly more of a buyer’s culture, there is still hope for potential sellers.

E-Commerce

Basically, e-commerce is a quick phrase for electronic commerce-a shirt bought online is e-commerce and men’s clothing at work, simple as that. So where would one go to find the largest variety of men’s clothing online? Of course, this depends on subjective taste, but there are online boutique-like stores that present great deals to members, such as GILT.com, where there are deals every day. In fact, GILT is so popular, that often an item is sold out in the first few minutes, proving the success between e-commerce and men’s clothing as a growing trend. Staying fashionable can get costly, though. So where to go for the best deals? Sure, there may be local stores with slightly used clothes or some great sale near you, but the internet trumps most of that easily. As a cliché as it may be, to find the best’ deals on men’s clothing is through eBay, Emperor of E-Commerce. Finding Lacoste polos for more than fifty percent off is just the tip of the fashionable iceberg.

Down side

Men’s clothing has two sides-looks, but also comfort. At the end of the day, a fancy shirt that’s too tight, too big, too itchy, or too anything other than comfortable is not a great deal, even if you are trying to impress your boss with a shiny new Zegna dress shirt. Because of the comfort aspect of fashion, e-commerce can easily, if not often, get in the way of men’s clothing. There is sometimes just not enough information-how long are the sleeves on a 17.5 dress shirt, 34/35? 36/37? These details can come between a perfect men’s clothing item, and a lemon.

However, though the opportunity to buy and wear a lemon all thanks to e-commerce is everywhere, think of it as germs-they may be in every crevice, but there are ways to get immune, and there are areas to definitely avoid. But how? When it comes to European dress shirts, for example, they are a bit more exact. Instead of labeling a dress shirt with what may seem like a random number to most, such as 17.5 for an XL dress shirt, men’s clothes in Europe are labeled by measurements, such as 44 instead of 17.5, where 44 represents centimeters of the neck all around. E-commerce, though, can still fudge up the differences between slim fit and regular fit, because every company’s “slim fit” can mean something else, so do be aware. What is so good about eBay is that you can potentially contact and question sellers about the item.

Selling

So what if you want to sell men’s briefs through e-commerce, but don’t want to hassle with too many membership nonsense, rating systems, etc? Craigslist is a great place to start. Place an ad for men’s clothes, and e-commerce does the rest when random potential buyers simply Google for something similar to your item. However, even better than craigslist is forums based around fashion. Starting a thread about you selling an item of men’s clothing is a definite way to both use, but also circumvent the issues of, e-commerce.
