Reselling Designer Jeans
I love reselling designer jeans because I can usually find them cheap, and the jeans section is so much easier to go through than shirts! Some sellers are weary of them because they haven’t had good luck. This may just be that they are choosing the wrong brands and styles. Choosing current trends and designer jeans can help you sell jeans fast and efficiently.
Currently, the trendy styles that buyers look for are higher rise, skinny leg, cropped, and factory framed hems.
Designer Jeans to look for- 2019 Update
- Mother Jeans. I recently just started finding this brand, and the sell through rate for these is amazing. They are highly sought after, and the good thing about this brand is any style sells! I wish I could resell these jeans every day!
2. Everlane. Everlane is known for their Ethical Factories and their jeans are a cult favorite. I haven’t found many pairs of their jeans yet as they haven’t been making them for long, but when I do I feel like I strike gold. These jeans are well made, and usually on current trend. This brand also usually sells well regardless of style.
3. Rag & Bone Jeans. The company says their jeans “meld classic tailoring with an edgy yet understated New York aesthetic”. They are highly sought after, I sell them really quickly. Really, any style by this designer sells exceptionally well.
4. J Brand Jeans. These designer jeans sell well for me, but only certain styles. I pass up anything made by them that isn’t high-waisted or skinny leg, unless its the BIG bell bottoms.
5. Hudson Jeans
I love finding Hudson jeans because I know they resell well, especially the ones with the triangle flap pocket. One piece of advice when you are looking them over- check the hems because they usually run REALLY long. For this reason, many pairs are hemmed. Don’t forget to disclose the tailoring if your pair is hemmed. Another bit of information. I can’t sell the smaller sizes (23, 24) so I pass those up. Otherwise I sit on them for a long time.
An Important Note when Buying Designer Jeans
Make sure to double check their condition and pay attention to the hems for wear or tailoring, the crotch area for holes and wear, and ALWAYS try the zipper to make sure it works! I have gotten so excited finding a brand before that I just ran to the register without looking them over. So check well!
