Short description of advertisement: 
UK childrenswear clothing retailer looking for manufacturers of school style uniform clothing items and casual wear such as jeans and chinos

A UK company specialising in plus fit, tall and adaptive children's clothing is looking for manufacturers to work with to develop various school uniforms items and casual wear (e.g. jeans) for boys and girls 4-16 years. The main items will be trousers and shorts both for school and casual wear.
A manufacturing agreement is sought.

The UK company has a specific on-going requirement for the supply of several manufactured items for direct retail and wholesale distribution.  

Price and quality standards will be essential to securing a manufacturing agreement as the UK company has a strong reputation for delivering outstanding value for their customers.

The company is looking for manufacturers who can work with them to develop their clothing range. The initial requirement will be to develop some new patterns for boy's school trousers (which may mean some smaller runs of trial sizes, 100pcs approx, across a range of sizes).  Once the design is agreed, bulk orders will be placed of around 600-1000 pieces per style. Annually the UK company currently sell in excess of 10,000 pairs of trousers across 6 designs, which they expect to grow to 30,000 with more designs available to their customers.  

The required garments are:

  • Boys and girls school trousers – standard fit, half elastic, full elastic.
  • Boys and girls casual trousers – standard fit, half elastic, full elastic
  • Boys and girls jeans – standard fit, half elastic, full elastic
  • Boys and girls shorts – standard fit, half elastic, full elastic

The school uniform market is very seasonal, with up to 60% of sales taking place during July-September but there will not be such seasonal variants with the casual clothing they are looking to develop.

The UK company is interested in establishing a manufacturing agreement with suitable manufacturers of the above articles.
