BustedTees Logo

Who doesn’t love a good t-shirt? For me it’s all about comfort. That’s why I generally pick solid colored tees made out of high quality fabrics. For others it’s more about expression–you want your shirt to say something about who you are. If what you’re saying about yourself with your shirt is that you have a good sense of humor, then BustedTees mint be the place for you to shop. They are a New York, NY based company that was started by the same team as CollegeHumor. They started in 2004 because they wanted “people to have fun, laugh, look good, feel comfortable, get good jobs, get sweaty dancing and go home with someone who also did those things.” It’s amazing what something as simple as a t-shirt can do for people.

Vince Logo

I’m not sure that I’d call myself brand conscious as much as I’d call myself brand loyal. With clothing I try to find a brand that matches my personal style and fits well. For a while Vince had some great sweaters that I really liked, so I bought two more after my first and kept an eye on the brand. I never ended up buying anything else from the New York, NY based company, but they seem to have grown a lot in popularity over the past few years. They started out in Los Angeles in 2002 with “a highly-edited collection of women’s knits and cashmere sweaters,” but today they offer a “collection of iconic essentials that women and men would want to wear every day.”

Lands’ End

by on May 14, 2014

Lands' End Logo

Many of America’s great apparel brands started out by catering to a specific sporting lifestyle. Some, like Filson and Orvis, have largely stayed true to their roots. While others, like Abercrombie & Fitch, have moved far away from the brands that they once were. Lands’ End got its start as a yachting supply company in Chicago, but today it is based in Dodgeville, WI and is “an international apparel brand synonymous with timeless American style.” The company is certainly still inspired by its nautical heritage, but they definitely had to broaden their horizons a bit to get where they now are–generating well over $1 billion in revenue annually.

Filson Logo

I’m up in Michigan trying to get my fix of spring fly fishing. Now is the time of year when everyone is gearing up and buying new stuff. Usually it’s the latest, greatest technology that gets people to break out their wallets, but I’m also seeing a lot of people buying bamboo rods and other more traditional stuff. One brand that definitely falls on the traditional side is Filson. The older guys (that’s most of them) up here love it, but I’m also seeing it get popular with a younger, slightly hipsterish crowd. The Seattle, WA based company is “renowned for making products in the USA from fabrics such as heavyweight Tin Cloth and warm Mackinaw Wool.” Whether it’s workwear, hunting gear, or fishing gear, if it’s made by Filson, it’s going to last.

You can buy clothes in a lot of places. Where you buy typically depends on whether you’re looking for a good price, convenience, or your favorite brands. Then you have to decide whether you’d rather shop online or in person. If you’re brand focused and like shopping online, you may want to check out REVOLVE. The company is based in Cerritos, CA and is the “virtual home for an unrivaled collection of the world’s most coveted brands.” REVOLVE offers both men’s and women’s clothing, though the focus definitely seems to be on women’s lines.

Destination Maternity Corporation Logo

I’ve been married nearly 9 months now. Slowly more and more people are asking, “When are you going to have kids?” Getting a puppy deflected a little bit of attention, but it’s only going to gain in intensity. If we do eventually give into the pressure, we’ll face a time in our lives that makes preparing for a puppy seem like nothing. That’s why it should be no surprise that the expecting parent market is absolutely huge. In fact, Destination Maternity Corporation, which is based in Philadelphia, PA, does $500 million in annual sales as “the world’s leading maternity apparel retailer.” Yes, a single company (albeit with quite a few brands) can generate half a billion dollars in revenue selling clothes for pregnant women.

Reformation Logo

When I think about my personal impact on the environment, I think about driving, flying, heating my home, what I eat, and other similar things. Clothing doesn’t typically come to mind, but the production and transportation of clothing can have significant negative impacts on the environment. Reformation is trying to reduce the impact. They’re a Los Angeles, CA based “environmentally sustainable fashion brand that repurposes vintage and surplus
materials to create a chic, limited edition collection.” The way that they operate is completely different from most other fashion brands, but it’s working.

Todd Snyder

by on January 9, 2014

Todd Snyder Logo

Until today I’d never looked up the meaning of my last name. I always knew that Franzen was Swedish because my dad’s dad’s parents were both Swedes, but I never knew that it actually means French man. Other than owning a French breed of dog, parlaying a tiny bit of Français, and enjoying French food, I haven’t really lived up to the name. Todd Snyder has lived up to his surname. It means “one who makes outer garments” in Dutch. His eponymous Todd Snyder brand is a New York, NY based men’s fashion line that is inspired “by Savile Row craftsmanship, military tailoring, and a distinct New York sensibility.” I’ll guess that Todd Snyder’s Iowa roots have also had an influence on the company.

Arc'teryx Logo

I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t get to experience the coldest weather of my life last night, but it’s pretty good to be “stranded” on a tropical island. Since I work from home, I used to get through cold snaps by not leaving the house for extended periods of time. Now that I have a dog and no yard, that would be… messy. Shockingly, if you were more and better clothing, you can stay pretty warm in even the coldest temperatures. Less shockingly, quite a few of the companies that make awesome cold weather gear are based in Canada. We don’t usually cover opportunities outside the U.S., but we’re making an exception for Arc’teryx. They are based in Vancouver, BC, and they merge their “unrivaled designs with the best quality, highest performing materials and assemble them in the most innovative and most durable manner for the intended use.” In other words, they make high performance for extreme situations–whether it’s climbing a mountain or walking your dog on the coldest day of your life.

Easton-Bell Sports

Easton-Bell Sports Logo

I’m not sure how we ended up here, but Black Friday shopping seems to be the latest extreme sports craze. I’ll spend a little time looking for deals online, but you won’t find me within a few miles of any major retail store. If I somehow got duped into going shopping, I’d totally wear a helmet. It’s better safe than sorry. Easton-Bell Sports, which is based in Van Nuys, CA, is one of the biggest sports helmet companies in the world. Their brands include Giro, Bell, Riddell, Easton, Easton Cycling, and Blackburn. They all come together to help Easton-Bell Sports pursue their goal of being “a leading designer, developer and marketer of sports equipment and accessories that enhance athletic performance and protection.”

Black Diamond Equipment

InvestmentNews is our sponsor this week, and they would like to tell you about their NextGen Virtual Career Fair on November 8th. It’s an awesome opportunity for students and interns to network and find finance jobs on the spot.

Black Diamond Equipment Logo

I haven’t seen snow yet, but I did experience some sort of frozen precipitation while I was in Michigan over the weekend. It’s hard enough to accept that summer is over and that the shorts need to be put away, but it’s really difficult to come to terms with the fact that winter is coming (especially when you live in Chicago). It’s even worse because almost everything that I love to do is better with good weather (fishing, playing beach volleyball, grilling, walking the dog). Yet for some people it’s almost the opposite. These are the type of people who buy gear from Black Diamond Equipment, a Salt Lake City, UT based company that is “all about climbing and skiing.” In fact, Black Diamond Equipment makes it possible for people to enjoy weather that might otherwise keep you stuck indoors with a bad case of the shack nasties.

Resistol Logo

We all know that you can’t wear white after Labor Day. It’s a rule. However, unless you’re a cowboy (or you read our profile on Stetson from 5 years ago), you probably didn’t know that there’s a similar rule about cowboy hats. Today’s the last day to wear a straw hat. Tomorrow you must break out the felt hat. And if you own a cowboy hat, there’s a really good chance it was made by Resistol. They are a Garland, TX based company that sells about a million hats a year, which apparently makes them the largest headwear manufacturer in the world. They don’t have a Jobs page, but they have to have a lot of employees to produce that many hats. I did find some evidence of internships and other jobs, so use Resistol’s Contact page to investigate further.

Maker’s Row

Maker's Row Logo

While I love the economics of building a business entirely online, there’s still something that feels hollow when I tell people that I make and run websites for a living. Maybe it’s the fact that a solar flare could wipe out everything that I’ve done (though you could say the same about an asteroid for any business). Deep down there’s a part of me that wants to build, market, and sell a tangible product. Unfortunately, that’s way harder than building a website. Maker’s Row plans on changing that. They’re a New York, NY based startup that wants “to make the manufacturing process simple to understand and easy to access.” While 3D printing is getting a lot of hype right now, almost all products are made by more traditional manufacturers. If you want to make something, you’re going to need to find someone to manufacture it for you. Maker’s Row will help you find them.

Volcom Logo

When I was growing up, I was anything but a youth against establishment. My school had a dress code, and I’m not sure that I ever violated it (ok, I may have forgotten to wear a belt once or twice). Even outside of school, I wore the same khaki pants that I had to wear at school (but with sneakers and a t-shirt of course)–I think I outgrew my last pair of jeans in 7th grade. It shouldn’t be a surprise that I’ve never owned anything from Volcom. In case you’re not familiar with the brand, they’re a San Clemente, CA based “designer, marketer and distributor of premium quality young men’s and young women’s clothing, accessories and related products.” The company was founded in 1991, and came out of Orange County boardsports culture.

Coldwater Creek

Coldwater Creek Logo

Right after I graduated college, I started investing in the stock market. I’ve more than doubled my money since then, which means that I made some pretty good decisions. One stock that I was considering at the time was CWTR. It was around $45 back then, and I thought that I had a few good reasons to believe that the stock would go up from there. Luckily, I didn’t buy. The stock is now at less than $4 per share–and that’s after a 4 for 1 reverse stock split. I’m glad that I avoided that -98% return on investment. While Coldwater Creek, which is based in Sandpoint, ID (with a design center New York, NY), has certainly struggled over the past 6 years, that doesn’t mean that you should overlook the potential opportunity. The multi-channel “specialty retailer of women’s apparel, jewelry and accessories” started as a one-room mail order business. They obviously had an amazing growth period that took them to going public, and now it’s time for them to get back on track.

The North Face

The North Face Logo

I’m headed to Colorado for my bachelor party this weekend. We rented a ranch, and we’re planning on hiking, fishing, and eating meat. My hope was that we’d get shorts and t-shirt weather, but it’s looking more and more like we might need to bring along something from The North Face. It’s not that we’ll be doing any hardcore mountaineering during the trip–it’s just going to be cold. As much as we all know that The North Face, which is based in Alameda, CA, is about pushing “the boundaries of innovation so that you can push the boundaries of exploration,” we also know that a lot of their gear is purchased to keep suburban kids warm while they wait for the school bus. That’s not a slight The North Face. It’s just that when you make high performance clothing and outerwear that looks great and is relatively affordable, people are going to use it in all kinds of situations.

Trumaker Logo

Button down shirts never fit me properly. I’m only 6’3, but I end up needing an XXL from many brands to get close to the right length (otherwise raising my arms turns the shirt into a belly shirt–and don’t get me started on sleeve length). The problem is that XXL shirts are made for 300 pound dudes, and though I’m by no means thin, I’m not built like that. I made the same exact complaint a few years ago when I wrote about Proper Cloth, but I still haven’t purchased a custom shirt. Maybe Trumaker will change that. They’re a San Francisco, CA based e-commerce and men’s fashion upstart that makes “it easy to get shirts made just for you.” Though Trumaker is positioning itself as an e-commerce company, they’re also using in-person “Outfitters” to get measurements and show off fabrics.

Be Tru

Right now it seems that Trumaker is only operating in San Francisco and Los Angeles, but I’m sure expansion will move quickly. When all you need is sales people to launch a new location, you can move pretty fast. Once a customer meets with the Outfitter, the rest happens over the web. You can shop online like you would on any other site, and they’ll send you shirts that are made for your dimensions. One thing I really like about Trumaker is that they’re not just making dress shirts–they’re offering more casual wear with great plaids and other patterns. There aren’t any prices posted on the Trumaker site, but they say that they “are comparable to similar high-quality, off-the-rack shirts.” This a business with a ton of potential, so if you want to get in on it take a look at Trumaker’s Internships page. Right now they’re hiring an Apparel & E-commerce Intern. They don’t say whether the position is paid, but it looks like a really cool opportunity. You might also want to take a look at their Outfitter positions as an internship alternative.

Rue La La

Rue La La Logo

I was way ahead on the flash sales and members only shopping thing. I did a writeup on Gilt Groupe almost five years ago just as the business model was catching on. While there isn’t nearly as much excitement about the space as there used to be, it’s still a great way to sell stuff (time constraints and sales both have amazing psychological effects on people). And that’s why I think it’s worth taking a look at Rue La La. They’re a Boston, MA and New York, NY based company that curates “Boutiques filled with the best of the best in women’s and men’s fashion, home, travel, kids, and more.” Each sale lasts 48 hours and is limited to members only (though becoming a member is about as easy as signing up).

Steven Alan

Steven Alan Logo

I have a favorite shirt. It doesn’t quite fit anymore, and I’m sad about it. When I first bought it, it was just barely long enough. With each wash it seems to shrink a tiny bit, and now it’s at the point where any upward arm movement temporarily turns it into a belly shirt. Nobody needs to see that. The shirt is a purple (I’d call it pink) Cotton Reverse Seam Shirt by Steven Alan, and I bought it on Gilt. The best thing about it is that people always tell me that I have my shirt inside out, and I get to exclaim, “Haven’t you ever heard of reverse seams?” It’s the small things in life. The Reverse Seam Shirt is Steven Alan’s signature, and it’s part of the reason why the New York, NY based designer and retailer has been able to grow “a loyal following for [its] unique brand of casual, smart, self-assured essentials for both men and women.”

Rainbow USA

by on March 1, 2013

One Day One Job is hiring a paid intern/part-timer to work on a few Marketing projects. If you’re interested, e-mail me at outlining one idea for how you can help grow the site (including your résumé won’t hurt). Check out our past job posting for more background info.

Rainbow USA Logo

Yesterday we looked at a chain of sandwich shops that started from a modest single location. Today we’re going to look at “a neighborhood boutique” that opened in 1935 and has grown to more than 1,000 locations across 37 states. The company is Rainbow Shops, and oddly enough, I’ve never heard of them. That’s not a bad thing considering that females are their target market and I don’t spend a lot of time in shopping malls. The Brooklyn, NY based retailer offers an “assortment of clothing for juniors, plus sizes, and children, as well as an extensive shoe collection.”

I’m looking for one or two paid interns/part-timers to help me grow the ODOJ/ODOI audience. If you’re interested, e-mail me at outlining one idea for growing the site and how you can help (a résumé won’t hurt). For more background see here (but note this is from a year and a half ago).

Everlane Logo

While I’m sure Macklemore’s Thrift Shop has made it more fashionable to buy secondhand clothing, the fact remains that most of us buy clothing that has been marked up every time it moves through the supply chain. For a designer shirt that can be up to eight times. We all know that clothes don’t have to be expensive, but we keep coming back to the designers and brands that we like. Everlane is a Los Angeles, CA and San Francisco, CA based “luxury clothing design and manufacturing company” that “aims to provide low-cost, high-quality goods by cutting out middlemen.” They offer simple lines for both men and women that focus on essentials that almost everybody needs.

J. Crew

J. Crew Logo

Before I discovered Bonobos, I used to actually buy clothes in retail stores. I guess you could say my style was preppy (and probably still is) considering the fact that I haven’t owned a pair of jeans since 7th grade. Back when I was still buying clothes in stores, J. Crew was the definition of preppy (barring Brooks Brothers of course), so that’s where I shopped. They seem to be making their image more “hipster” these days, but I’ll guess that’s based more on a change in fashion than a change in their target demographics. Anyway, J. Crew is a New York, NY based company that started with a catalog in 1983 and opened their first store in 1989. They’ve grown into an amazingly recognizable brand, and recently they’ve started growing another brand called Madewell.

I’ve always wanted to visit Japan. While the country is economically and technologically very similar to the U.S., it seems to be completely different culturally. I might get a chance to go there for my honeymoon (it’s one place that we’re considering), but until then I’ll have to enjoy Japan through its imports to the U.S. One of the latest is UNIQLO, a “brand has evolved from a chain of roadside stores to an international leader in style, quality, and fun.” I’ve never been inside one of their stores, but it seems that they’re about to start popping up all over the place (the first U.S. based store was in New York, NY, which is also where UNIQLO’s U.S. operations are based out of). From what I can tell, UNIQLO is targeting a similar market to American Apparel, though UNIQLO believes that their clothes set them “apart from apparel companies whose sole purpose is the pursuit of fashion trends.”

Most of you will end up in jobs where what you wear to work is based on looking appropriate. Comfort and style may also be considerations, but in most jobs it’s about looking like you fit in. In most jobs what you wear to work probably won’t affect your performance or safety, but it will if you’re a firefighter, law enforcement officer, first responder, or military service member. Those are jobs where what you wear matters–really matters. LION is a Dayton, OH based company that designs, manufactures, markets, and delivers products “to ensure the health, safety and performance of the first responders who serve our communities and our country.” LION has been owned and operated by the same family since 1898, and I have to imagine that they’ve come a long way over the past 100+ years.

Twice Logo

It’s hard not to have a closet full of clothes that you don’t wear. No matter how ruthless you are with culling your collection of clothing, you always end up with some things that you wear a lot and some that you don’t. There are two ways to look at this first world problem. You can buy more stuff that you like, or you can get rid of the stuff that you don’t want anymore. Twice is a company that solves this problem (but only for women at this point). They’re a San Francisco, CA based company that buys and sells “high-quality, affordable secondhand clothes online.” It’s an ages old business that should play well online, and it even has a positive social/environmental impact.

Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix Logo

There’s no doubt that we’re in the middle of the second phase of e-commerce. The first stage was all about helping you find and buy the stuff that you want or need online. Amazon has that mostly covered, and there are plenty of retailers who fill in the gaps. But what if you want shopping to be fun? It’s all about discovery, which is why sites and companies that help you find interesting products are so popular right now. The term “curation” is being used a lot, and I think it’s appropriate. Stitch Fix is a San Francisco, CA based company that is using strong curatorial talent to sell clothing and accessories to women. They’re like a Trunk Club for women in that they send you a box of stuff (as often as you’d like) based on your response to style survey questions, and you can choose to keep as much or as little of it as you like.

Ever have a class that required a clicker? Wouldn’t you rather use your phone? Top Hat Monocle is a San Francisco based company that is reinventing the college lecture experience. They’re looking for Campus Business Development Associates all across the country to spearhead campus adoption by reaching out to professors, raising awareness about Top Hat Monocle, and working closely with our sales and marketing teams to create a strategy that works. Find out how to get one of these internships!

MeUndies Logo

I’m kind of obsessed with subscription based business models right now. I’ve been trying to come up with some new ones on my own, but I’ve also been investigating those that are already out there. One non-obvious (at least to me) subscription offering that seems to be gaining a lot of traction is underwear. There are a number of players in the market, so it must mean that people like getting new pairs of underwear on a regular basis. One of these companies is Me Undies. They’re based in Beverly Hills, CA, and they offer “the world’s most comfortable underwear in all your favorite colors and styles.” Oh yeah, and they do it at a way better price than designers who offer underwear of the same quality.

Rent The Runway

Rent The Runway Logo

I’m going to a wedding this weekend. I’ll wear the same black Bonobos suit that I wear to every wedding. All I have to think about is what tie to wear. I’d never even consider buying a new outfit for a wedding other than my own or one I’m in. But it’s not an uncommon thing for a lot of women to wear a different dress to every wedding they go to. That can get expensive, unless you choose to Rent The Runway. Rent The Runway is a New York, NY based “community designed to fill the needs of women who know and love high fashion, who want to look glamorous for all their nights out, and experiment with new brands without the anxiety of investing in piece after piece.” (Use this link to try it for $20 off.) The company was started by two women (Jenn and Jenny) who met at Harvard Business School, and it’s taken off since as the “Netflix for fashion.”

I’m in Ithaca, NY to have my engagement photos taken (finally). It’s a chilly, drizzly, grey day (which is surprisingly perfect for having photos taken outside according to the photographer). It’s typical weather for Ithaca, and it’s the opposite of everything that I would associate with the Pacific Sunwear brand, which is probably why they closed their location in a nearby mall. The Anaheim, CA based company is “dedicated to embracing the amazing diversity and unique sense of adventure that California offers at every turn based on this vast, yet attainable state.” Their name really says it all–the brand is indelibly to a climate and a geography.

Tailgate Clothing

Tailgate Clothing Logo

Last weekend I was in Ithaca, NY for a wedding. It just so happens that I went to Cornell, so it was a homecoming of sorts for me even though the wedding was non-Cornell people. While I was there, I went into the campus store to look at the latest Cornell gear. Red may be a hard color to wear, but I spent four years mastering it. Unfortunately, I didn’t see anything that I liked. The best Cornell shirts are the ones issued to every athlete on campus (I have magically procured a few of these). Most of the stuff that you can buy is kind of lame. Tailgate Clothing is a Ankeny, IA based company that is solving this problem by bringing fashion back to collegiate apparel (here are some of their Cornell t-shirts). Apparently there was some pent up demand for this kind of merchandise (stuff that recreates “a forgotten era of timeless collegiate and classic American sportswear by incorporating vintage manufacturing methods, quality, workmanship, and an eye for details), as Tailgate Clothing has seen 1,153% three-year growth to $24.7 million in revenue (putting them at #327 on the Inc. 500).
