As the novel coronavirus impact grows, men's fashion reselling appears to have to found a new platform for global post-pandemic power and influence: Offering new and gently used designer and unbranded apparel, footwear and accessories for social distanced men around the world.
If the virus crisis has shown me anything, it is the potential for smaller players to compete with bigger, well capitalized fashion companies and retailers. This is a key indicator of the shape of things to come. But resellers without a business background or pedigree could struggle. The lack of proper presentation, inventory inconsistencies, unstable supply chain channels, poor systems and processes, and late shipping could be a grave error.
Today, thanks to the Internet, interactive marketplaces such as Grailed, Poshmark, Shopify, and eBay are helping sellers and buyers to connect for postcrisis wardrobe going into the year and beyond.
