I’m in the throws of starting my online unisex clothing business.
I’m after an Australian clothing wholesaler/manufacturer that supplies sweatshirts (jumpers) and trackpants for both men & women.
I’m not looking to buy a massively bulk amount to start with but I am wanting to find some good advice on some company names to look into.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thankyou all so much

So, the excitement starts huh?
The garment industry is tiered in many levels. It is worth finding out the global dynamics of how the industry works in Australia and elsewhere.
I would start my research offline by directly contacting some manufacturers to find out how the process works.
It is not like buying a garment at KMart.
If you can find out what works for them, you will be able to piece together how that can work for you.
Look for the products you are after on Ebay and when you find what you like ask them if they sell wholesale. Many of them do sell wholesale and just use Ebay as another way of selling. We started a business once in exactly this way.
