What sets Combatant Gentlemen out among the competition?

Combatant Gentlemen, the California-based stylish menswear company, has only a 6-year history. It was founded in 2012, it gained popularity and a customer base quickly, and it is back on track today under new ownership. But what is it that lead it up in the first place, by attracting and keeping fans and customers?

The Combatant Gentlemen company produces mainly men’s suits. Its products range from outfits which can be worn on a typical office day or job interview, to more stylish models designed for special occasions or weddings. The products inventory includes some separate menswear items and accessories too, such as shirts, blazers, pants, shoes, belts, ties, and suit bags. But all this is nothing new so far. Good tailors are employed everywhere, and many sites offer a variety of men’s suits and additional items. So where is the advantage of Combatgent?

One example will settle this. All suits from the Essential collection are priced $128 USD. All suits from the Mezzanine collection are priced $208 USD.  So are the outfits from the featured new Lost$ Found collection. If you need something more formal, all tuxedos go at $180 USD.  Brown cap toe lace up oxfords cost $72 a pair. All ties cost $13. A navy three-piece wedding suit is $160.

Prices lower than expected usually arouse suspicion. To achieve a low retail price, manufacturers have many ways to reduce production costs. Unfortunately, some of these include compromises with fabric quality and employee expertise. Moreover, a great deal of the added cost results from relying on middlemen along the chain between raw materials – ready product. Middlemen are there to make a profit, so the buyer ends up paying for this – and has to put up with quality that could definitely be better. But with Combatant Gentlemen buyers, this is not the case.

CG has always followed a company policy of eliminating middlemen or outsourcing. In this way, they can make a reasonable profit and still not compromise the quality of their products. So, the company goes as far back along the production chain as owning flocks of sheep or cattle herds, where the raw materials come from. So, a CG $128 suit (or $160 at the regular price without the current July 4th discount) will have more to offer in the way of quality than its competitors.  A customer will enjoy 100% wool, leather, silk or cotton, all coming from the same Shandong region in Northern China, as well as competent tailoring. So a brand means a lot, but what comes behind the brand is essential.

For those who are interested – the prices cited here are calculated according to CG’s 20% site-wide July 4th discount.  More about the new collections and products you can find on their official website – combatgent.com.

Combatant Gentlemen is under new ownership and receives enthusiastic 2018 customer reviews

Combatant Gentlemen was founded in 2012 by by Vishaal Melwani, Mohit Melwani and Scott Raio, and has seen some ups and downs in its 6-year presence in the world of stylish menswear.

CG is a North American company, based in California. As a start-up, the company grew fast and was as successful as to gain a spot in the Forbes 2015 list of most promising start-up companies. Founded by a professional tailor, the company offered – and still does – really good quality men’s suits, shirts, pants, blazers, tuxedoes, suits bags or wedding suits. The prices were quite affordable, so the quality-pricing ratio made it really worth trying the company out and placing orders.

But this fast growth, as CEO Vishaal Melwani said in 2017, may have been too much for a young company with 20-30 employees. The real slump was towards the end of 2017, when negative reviews built up and even reached the pages of Business Insider.  Mainly, customers were complaining of not receiving their orders on time and being unable to reach the company by phone or e-mail to clarify the situation.

However, by mid-2018 everything seems to have changed completely. First of all, Combatant Gentlemen is no longer unresponsive. The company is under new ownership and obviously, someone is trying hard to regain customer trust and compensate for past failures. Let’s take Weddingwire, a review site which does not allow businesses to pay for deleting or changing negative statements. All negative reviews have dutifully received an apologetic response, offering store credit for unfulfilled orders and informing clients about the new situation. And it does not end in apologies only.

Despite off-putting disgruntled opinions, some customers have dared to place orders for their weddings or special occasions. The outcome seems to be more than satisfactory. “Happy bride” Sharon said only on June 9th 2018 that she placed two orders and both arrived on her doorstep within 5 days! And there are others like her, satisfied after receiving items after 4-5 days, and also praising the unfailing style and quality of the products.

On Trustpilot, things look pretty much the same. After the dissatisfaction of 2017, the latest 2018 reviews are more than favourable. Salt Balty from May 8th and Greg Wilkinson from June 21st both say that they are glad to see their favourite company back on track. Mind you, the quality of the clothes sold has never been questioned.  The only problem ever was the speed of fulfilling orders, and that has definitely been corrected by the new management.

One look at Combatant Gentlemen’s website, combatgent.com, will give you an idea why this brand quickly drew its crowd. Unquestioned style and reasonable pricing, combined with capable management – all these deserve our attention and consideration as potential customers, or simply fans.

Cancun Airport Transportation

Mexico is great country to travel to and the city of Cancun after all is very popular and preferred destination by the tourists. But travelling to another country is not that simple and after we run to the computer or our favorite travel agency to book our vacation, we have to do the major thing, which is planning. And when it is about planning, well… the devil is in the details. If we plan everything and make it right, our vacation can be much better and relaxing, giving us great overall experience.

For most people the planning phase can be annoying, so they prefer to pick a package deal. That way everything, or almost everything, will be sorted out for them. But sometimes these package deals do not include the transportation from and to the airport and this can ruin the experience for some people. This is why we suggest you to plan your airport transfers, in this case they are from and to Cancun airport.

If it is your first time of picking and arranging Cancun airport transportation, do not worry at all. Just follow some simple tips and everything will be smooth and you will start enjoying your vacation right away after you land to the airport.

When choosing an airport transportation company, we suggest to check their reputation and experience. If you pick a reputable company with many years of experience, even if their prices are slightly bigger, you guarantee yourself better service and a smaller chance of mistakes happening. Always check more than one company and pick the one that is the most trustworthy.

When you have chosen a company, the next step is to check if they are going to be available for the date and time when you arrive or have to depart. Sometimes it might happen that the company you choose is not available, so double check that and if that is the case, pick the second airport transportation company in your list. Repeat the step with them too and make sure that you found available and reputable transport.

Last, but not least – the budget. Most of us will enjoy the vacation if we succeed to accomplish great experience and relaxation with the smallest amount of money. But not every time cutting the costs can be in our favor. This is the case with the airport transportation services. Being on a budget might ruin our vacation as soon as we land at the airport. This is why sometimes it is worth to spend a little more money for this kind of service, to ensure that everything will be smooth and our vacation is going to be just like we imagine it.

How Combatant Gentlemen became so successful in just a few years

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.

The surge of orders shows just how promising this business idea is. Offering high-quality stylish garments at affordable prices is obviously a very good way to grow a business in a matter of just a few years.

Obviously, men are very interested in purchasing top quality formal suits for as little as $140. This niche seems to be quite a big one as men are looking to purchase stylish formal clothing without breaking the bank.

More Mormons are turning to LDS dating sites and apps to find their spouses

Mormons are brought up with the idea that marriage is the ultimate goal of their lives. Even though they lead quite traditional lifestyles, lately more young Mormons turn to LDS dating sites and apps to find their potential spouses.

The main reasons are that many of them find it difficult to meet their future life partners in their own church temples. A lot of young Mormons find themselves having to fly throughout the country and to different towns in order to attend different church congregations looking for love and partnership.

As the world is becoming more dependent on social media and dating sites and apps, Mormons too are turning to these modern means to socialize and find a marital partner.

The belief that marrying another member of the Mormon faith as a union inside a church temple is key for the salvation in the highest level of heaven has made young Mormons desperate to find suitable partners. This though is not as easy as it sounds, especially in small towns and church congregations, despite the efforts of the leaders to organize as many social events and single wards where single members of the church can meet and get to know each other as possible.

Naturally, since most of the popular dating apps and sites are for people looking for having some fun and possibly sex, and not necessarily seeking a life partner, Mormons find it difficult to get proper matches at platforms such as Tinder or Snapchat due to the condemnation of premarital sexual relationships for people of this faith.

Now, thanks to the development of specialized LDS dating sites and mobile apps, more young Mormons are finding their partners without needing to travel around the country and the world to find them.

Specialized dating websites such as TrueLDS are addressing the Mormon idea of continuing the lineage, as well helping the Mormon youth face and address the anxieties of cultural and family pressure and their personal desire to find the perfect partner whom to marry within their faith.

So, websites and apps like this one are an absolute answer to all the prayers which young and frustrated Mormons are turning to in hope of finding somebody to share their lives with.

Learn how to travel, fun, easy and without breaking the bank

Do you keep envying the Instagram influencers you are following about their adventures and pictures of beautiful and exotic destinations? No need to be jealous here, you don’t need to be a millionaire to be able to travel to amazing destinations too.

Here are some tips on how to travel easily without breaking the bank

Seek for budget destinations without being too picky

Cheap destinations for backpacking are popular because often times even if the flight is steep your stay there will cost you less than you spend normally at home. You can pick beautiful countries like Nepal, India, Thailand, Vietnam or countries in Latin America, where you can find hostels and lodgings costing you less than you would normally pay for a sandwich and soda back at home.

Also, take the time to look for cheap flights, again without being picky. You can find some surprisingly good deals to places which you never suspected you will visit. Also, plan your visit off of tourist season so that you get better offers for hostels or rooms to stay.

Choose slow travelling

The slower you move on the map, the less expensive your travel will be. The more planes, buses and trains you add to your travel costs – the more money you will need to spend on getting where you are going.

Sometimes choosing a slower train can save you a ton of money which you can spend on much more important or interesting stuff once you get to your destination.

Plus, you will have time to get to know the people, the sites and get a feel of the culture if you spend more time with them.

Embrace light travelling

Only pack the essentials in your backpack. This will help avoid checked luggage fees, and allow you to hop on low cost flights at the best price. Also, a single backpack is much easier to stuff under the seat of a bus or in a train. Also, travelling light makes logistics much easier and will allow you to travel more without the burden of carrying huge suitcases.

So, get that backpack ready and start searching for that exotic destination you have always wanted to visit, but have never dared to because of the money involved! See more on WonderBackpack!
