    Online Fashion Tycoon Simon Cobb Opens Clothing Stock Exchange Via Menswearexchange.com

     

    Simon Cobb said:

     

    Sometimes I need to remind myself that I'm only 23 years old, I'm  immensely proud and humbled by the response Menswear Exchange has  received since I launched it in October however I'm always trying to do  more.

     

    There's always something that can be improved, the Stock Exchange  in it's simplest form is not a new concept per se but the innovation on  the idea is what makes it a new concept as it's not been used in this  sector before in this way.

     

    We need more innovators, I see too many  businesses just following trends and copying fonts, logos etc whereas  they should be taking what they like from that initial idea and  appropriating it in a way which best expresses their individuality,  using the original concept as inspiration not a blueprint.

     

    I first started what was then called; uniquemenswearstore because I would have a lot of my peers and others comment on how much they liked what I was wearing so I decided to start selling similar products firstly to them, then word of mouth spread and I began networking my products in my local area.

     

    I then diversified and began selling on eBay which opened up my business to a plethora of new customers; I was suddenly selling to many customers across the world who were mainly interested in my Celebrity fashion as well as some well-known brand names.

     

    Last year after 4 years of running my eBay store (unique men’s wear store) I decided to invest greatly in a rebranding and expansion of my store which is now called Menswear Exchange and that included the launch of menswearexchange.com October 2013, this gave me an opportunity to now offer a greater selection of products at better prices...

     

    Since Menswear Exchange has launched I have also introduced the Stock Exchange concept which allows customers to make an offer, part exchange or swap their unwanted collectible clothing for whatever we currently have on offer. This year I'm also launching a street wear brand called Three Dreams so watch this space.

     

    My biggest challenge had to be when I first started selling on eBay, I was suddenly dealing with suppliers far more frequently and at first it was hard finding the right balance of a competitive selling price vs product cost + eBay fees & PayPal fees which took at least a year to get right but from then on everything began to get much easier, it also helped that soon after that I'd finished my studies at university

     

    Menswear Exchange is very unique in that we offer a selection of your favorite brands such as Converse, Ralph Lauren, etc. but we also like to strongly promote Independent brands and we have a few exclusive brands on our website which means you can come to us for a much more unique and individual item whilst at the same time supporting Independent trade, which have great talent as we only represent brands we feel deserve recognition

     

    Not only that but we have two very unique departments; one being the Inspired Range which is a department focusing on all celebrity fashion and current trends, most stores just have all of their products in one place so they can get muddles but we like to categories into departments and our Inspired Range is our most popular department for sure, we make sure you can get your hands on a celebrity style before and often better than the high street.

     

    Secondly our Stock Exchange (explained before) makes us very unique as we are the first online clothing store to introduce this idea; we will hopefully be expanding on this idea over the coming years too with some great ideas in the pipeline.

     

    We Offer:

     

    1) Very competitive prices

     

    2) Unique products

     

    3) Extensive range of top quality

     

    4) Rare and sought after clothing

     

    5) Excellent customer service (we answer all emails within 24 hours)
