At Citizen-T we scour the planet for high-quality used and rejected apparel so that we may present options to our wholesale customers and prospects. While the practice of throwing away unwanted garments is incredibly pervasive, the ability to locate lots before they end up in landfills can be challenging. We have partnered with several organizations to assist us with this effort and every day our story reaches more people and more and more stock becomes available.
We will work with you to source the ideal canvas for your project. (PS: that means the garments)
We will work with you to create the ideal designs for your Citizen-T project/apparel line.
We will manage the logistics of getting the bulk goods into production for resurfacing.
We will facilitate the pick, pack, shipping and relabeling of the garments so they are ready for your distribution and retail teams.
We'll work closely with our partners & suppliers to ensure your continuous access to inventory and even help implement white-labeled programs.
Buying used goods - Sure why not!
At Citizen-T we have several channels to source previously loved apparel. While some great options exist domestically we sometimes look at overseas options for larger projects and at times great finds at good prices!
Our domestic partners are a big part of our mission and will always try to source closer to home before looking abroad as the logistics can add complexity. Fuck it! We will do whatever it takes, 100% of the time!
What to expect
Let’s talk about timelines and effort. Like anything new and different it will feel a little like putting a square peg into a round hole, but eventually this will be the easiest vendor partnership you have and certainly one of the most rewarding!
Typical lead times for sourcing and receiving bulk lots of gently used or rejected stock is about 20 days.
Designing your garment will take us typically 10 days which includes a few iterations (back and forth)
Production runs between 3 days and 3 weeks, depending on process, quantity and complexity.
Shipping can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks depending on where the product is sourced. (domestic vs overseas)
Receiving your shipment and getting them into production generally takes a few days.
Re-labeling, packing and shipping to your facilities takes approximately 3- 5 business days and typical intransit times vary from 2 days to 2 weeks depending on methods and rates.
