You need to varify that you are a ligit. wholesaler and go through the registration process - then they'll allow you to access the wholesale pricing.
It's not difficult and then you can access any time you want.

Hey guys,

I am a apparel manufacturer and would like to set up a business in Aus to supply blanks, what sort of advise could you give me as you will be the customers.

Are you looking for quality? low minimums, pricing that sort of thing? I am also open to suggestions.

Cheers

Hi
Not sure if your post will be revoked - ? advertising
but ....

Me personally:
I'm frustrated that its so difficult to source good quality, fashionable women's t-shirts / different styles / colours etc etc at affordable prices, compared to other countries.:(

Also, the absence of the same styles in larger sizes for the more curvacious gals.

And yet another - difficulty in sourcing kids / youth fashionable t-shirt etc. - again at affordable prices.

Thanks Donna,

I am not sure if I am advertising seeing as I still do not have a company in Aus.. regardless..

Agree with the larger sizes.. I am a big boy myself and I hate it when I am not able to get a shirt / pants because they do not cater to my size.. or it has run out..

When you say affordable prices.. what do you mean.. go crazy here as I am a manufacturer and would like to know what the screenprinters / embroiderers call affordable

Re: Australian Wholesale Blank T-Shirts Suppliers List
 
well, I'm basing my comparisons on prices & styles you see in the U.S. for example.
Where they might pay about $3 - $6, we will have to pay approx. $7 - $10 or $12 for the same styles. Makes keeping the pricing reasonable, difficult.
Gildan have introduced a more fashionable style at a pretty good price but I prefer styles like AS Cotton / Bella / Continental Clothing / AA etc. for the applications I use the shirts for.
There's no point putting Swarovski crystals (or anything else for that matter) on a cheap and nasty piece of clothing.

I am not sure I understand if it is USD $3-6 then should you not pay only about 10% more considering the exchange rate now? Why is the price so high?

Re: Australian Wholesale Blank T-Shirts Suppliers List
 
Prices quoted are from suppliers here in Australia!
I've never purchased clothing from outside of Australia - put off by the conversion rates + shipping.
Might be worth a try now but still haven't taken the plung.

Thanks Donna,
I am working out the numbers and its interesting, I am thinking about plus sizes and body suits.. more niche items.

donna truman February 19th, 2010 04:55 AM

Re: Australian Wholesale Blank T-Shirts Suppliers List
 
What are body suits?
How about kids/youth more stylish t-shirts ie. nice cut, cap sleeves ? 1/2 way between normal and scoop neck type thing??
They're hard to find.

Re: Australian Wholesale Blank T-Shirts Suppliers List
 
This is a bodysuit.. for infants
I would like to work on qty to see how viable it will be to bring in a container to aus and then send it out the various states as the orders come.
At the moment I am thinking of storing the whole lot at a warehouse / or friend's garage and running the business thru a website..

Hi suomaf,

I am interested in streetwear based styles which are very hard to find and are in high demand within the scenes I know and enjoy.

I have alot to do with skate snow and surf fashion, I also have many friends in bands and that DJ regularly around sydeny and melbourne there is common clothing link in all these scenes. And there are not enough brands(in my opinion) in Australia or America catering to them int erms of t-shirt cuts.

We want to see shirts that are longer in overall length with out the increase in sleeve length or width I see too many "square"shirts as we call this means as the size increase the shirt gets wider the sleeves get wider and longer and the length doesnt change.

What I would like to see is:
Shirts that increase in the same ratio all over as the size get larger(or increases where they are need:in overall length, width and sleeve width). This allows people individuality in the size they choose without sacrificing a good shape.

A mix of thin light tees for nights out and to relax in and some more heavy duties tees for skating, snow etc.

Low/wide necks and v-necks with a thinner collar.

Long, low neck and open arm singlets are also very popular(made popular in australia recently by surf/indie brand "insight")

For girls longer more loose fitting singlet like tees with and without sleeves that can be worn as dresses.

As for colours vintage distressed looks are sought after as well as stonewash style occasionally tie dies.

I know this is an in depth description but this is exactly what I am searching for in Australia and cant find. AA seem to be the best and are very good but still lack in some sizing areas. There is another brand selling in australia Called "Line" who sell through general pants co. and are extremely popular blanks but I cant find a wholesale for them.

Donna was right that shipping is the Main expenxse when buying form the states so we usually get hit with around $12-14 a shirt. I would personally be extremely happy with 6-10 Australian dollars a shirt.

I hope some of this helps and I'm sorry this was so long. I have recently started this comapny and have only bothered to print a few of my most basi designs because I dont want to waste my energy on poor blanks. I aim at a youth market and I want to do it right they have limited money and should get the best for what they spend.

If you end up getting set up please let me know I would love to talk more

Thanks man,

Appreciate the post. I know exactly what you are talking about. I supply a lot of stuff to akademiks and phat farm. I also developed some stuff to a "rapper" for his private line. 6-10 Aussie is doable for me, if the quantities are right. I still need to figure out costs for warehousing or if I just bung everything in a relative's house and send it out by courier that way. I asked around for a shop / warehouse the last time I was there and its steep. Props to you guys who run a shop. If you do need anything urgently, you could PM me and we can try to work something out.

We have found the Johnnybobbin t shirt fantastic and hard wearing.

My main problem is; I cannot find bright coloured infants and kids shirts. Right now i need around 30 royal blue and 30 hot pink from size 00 - 8.

I can get 1-2 etc in hot pink but no royal blue.
Anything under that in infants wear is just plain puke light blue or pale pale pink.

Any ideas people?

Hi Siavash,
Try Ausport in Marrickville Sydney. They offer the Sportage Range of t-shirts. Good value and nice people.
