Combatant Gentleman is a men’s clothing startup established in 2012 and offers stylish men’s apparel at reasonable prices.
Combatant Gentlemen is a men’s clothing startup that was founded on selling stylish clothing at accessible prices. It quickly gained a great following which led to making its way into the “most promising company” list of Forbes in 2015 after posting revenue of $10.1 million.
No wonder the company called itself the “Warby Parker for suiting.” The low cost of the menswear is achieved by close control of the supply chain and the shipment of all products. The company even owned its own cotton field in India and sheep fields in Italy to make sure that the materials used are closely controlled and yet not as expensive as materials offered from most other suppliers.
This successful strategy led to decreasing the production costs of a suit to $24-37 which obviously reflected on the final price.
In 2017, the company faced some criticism of delaying and canceling orders, which according to the CEO Vishaal Melwani was due to problems with suppliers from China an because it is a relatively new company with overwhelming amounts of orders.
Obviously, the rising number of complaints from angry grooms and groomsmen has led to a decrease the grade of the company to an F from the Better Business Bureau.
While some unhappy customers though that the company was going out of business due to lack of stock, this is not the case according to the founder and CEO Mr.Melwani. Later last year fresh inventory was received and all ongoing orders have been processed or are currently being completed.
The problems with the customer care service and the supplies which led to delays and canceled orders are being addressed by the founder and co-founders of Combatant Gentleman who are handling the problematic orders themselves in hope to save the good name and reputation of the company.
