How to Spot the Best Hip Hop Clothing Liquidators
Combing through wholesale showrooms for quality hip hop gear can be tough, but trying to do the same work online is even tougher. You need a plan of attack to do it right, and the process begins with knowing what your customers want. Once you have an idea what you are looking for, there are three things you’ll want in hip hop clothing liquidators.
Specialty websites only get retail store owners so far. You might be able to nab a few deals on brand-name gear, but beyond that selections will be too limited to stock even a few shops. Look for a supplier that has a wider range of urban clothing, from the usual tees and snapbacks to accessories, sneakers and long-sleeve tees. Even in the summer, long sleeves and hoodies sell, along with beanies.
An Ear to the Street
Wholesale clothing liquidators may have websites flush with merchandise, but unless the goods are wanted by customers you’ll have no use for most of the selection. Search out a wholesaler with an ear that is listening to the sounds of the street. You can tell pretty easily: Suppliers with tees featuring pop culture icons and hats from the hip hop brands are the ones to deal with. This business runs on the pulse of the street, and your racks should be echoing that feeling
Pricing That Makes Sense
What can you do with brand-name gear that is a little too close to its release date? If prices are too high, you cannot do much with it. Look for suppliers that catch the deals at the right moment from the manufacturers so the prices are low enough to move to your customers. Anyone can cherry pick hot gear when the prices are high. It takes a savvier supplier to keep finding the threads when they hit prices you and your customers can afford.

Summer of Icons: A Wholesale T-Shirt Guide
Legends of hip hop and sports are eternal. There is something about remembering a championship run, a song or a time from youth that remains with you forever. In 2015, NWA was back in the news with the film “Straight Outta Compton” and NWA tees were everywhere. This year, the passing of The Greatest and an embarrassment for the NBA’s greatest have two more icons returning. Here’s how to navigate wholesale clothing distributors to get the right tees in summer 2016.
Mohammed Ali R.I.P.
There was never a fighter like Mohammed Ali, and his personality was the equal of his boxing legend. Today, Ali represents a certain type of swagger in the sports world, but the man was much more than an exquisite athlete who could walk the walk after all the talk. Ali was a deep thinker and a man of strong principles. This summer, Ali tees bring it all back after his June passing.
Jordan Meme Comes Full Circle
“Crying Jordan” was supplying chuckles all over the world after the NCAA Championships early in 2016. Jordan’s UNC club lost while His Airness was in attendance, and he got his own crying face planted all over his body in different pictures from over the years. For store owners, all it means is Jordan is as relevant as ever, and the many tees available at bargain prices, including one by THC with Jordan smoking a cigar ($7.50) after his title win.
The Notorious One
Notorious B.I.G. was gunned down in March 1997, and the 20th anniversary of the tragedy is approaching fast. We have seen the many tees featuring Biggie’s iconic face and other symbols, but we haven’t seen anything like the Hudson tees featuring lines from his raps. White-on-black, lime-on-black, and aqua-on-white shirts are available at $20 wholesale. This one will be a hot seller.
Bud Becomes America
In summer 2016, Budweiser will no longer have its brand name on its labels. Instead, it will read “America” on top of the familiar logo. We’re not sure how many people will respond well to this shift, but we know tees of the original logo will suddenly look like throwbacks for an icon that has taken a different turn.
This summer, stock your stores with iconic tees from the best wholesale clothing distributors. Steal Deal has you covered on every front. For further information or to place an order contact Steal Deal at 323.581.8051 or visit www.StealDeal.com.
