The quest for the perfect leather jacket became a pivotal moment for a group of friends who, like many, found themselves caught between the extremes of fast fashion and extravagant luxury. In their pursuit of style, they discovered a glaring gap in the market.
Luxury brands beckoned with opulent offerings, but the steep price tags exceeded $1000-$1500, leaving many potential buyers disillusioned. On the flip side, fast fashion provided affordable options, albeit with the trade-off of subpar quality and a short lifespan. The friends, fueled by a shared frustration, questioned the absence of a middle ground.
Delving into the intricacies of the leather outerwear industry, they unearthed a fundamental issue – a labyrinthine supply chain with distributors, wholesalers, and retailers, all contributing to soaring prices. Shockingly, a minuscule portion of the consumer’s expenditure actually went into the product.
