Why Sell Jackets Online?
Jackets are a great seasonal product to sell. The niche offers a lot of variety from winter coats to bomber jackets to raincoats. The retail value of jackets is generally higher than other pieces of clothing within the fashion niche. This allows you to potentially make a higher profit. Jacket stores can also evolve into fashion stores allowing you to sell a wider range of products to use as upsells for your jackets. You can also sell accessories that complement your jackets such as scarves and earmuffs for winter coats or umbrellas and rain boots for rain coats.
To wholesale jackets, you would need to invest a lot of money into the seasonal business. First, jackets can cost a lot per item compared to clothing. Second, they’re often sold seasonally in the fall and winter when the weather is colder. You’d have unsold inventory sitting for half the year if you chose to wholesale. Another risky thing about wholesaling jackets is that sometimes the fall or winter season isn’t very cold resulting in fewer purchases of new jackets. When you dropship jackets, you can add or remove products easily. You can also add items that would complement the jackets during off-seasons allowing you to run your store year-round.

Jackets are typically lighter, and have a tight-fitting, with less insulation in comparison to coats.
