Frequently Asked Questions
1. Who is Eles Clothing?
Eles Clothing is a trading style of 4u Fashions Ltd .
Eles Clothing is one of the UKxs leading wholesalers of ex-chainstore clothing and has been trading successfully for over 20 years. Eles Clothing has gained a reputation of excellence for both quality of clothing and service.
2. What does ex chainstore mean?
Ex-chainstore means that the clothing was originally made for a major UK high street chainstore who cancelled the order. The most common cause for cancellations is late delivery. We can then offer them to our wholesale customers at a substantially lower price than the original manufacturer's price to the store group who ordered them in the first place!
3. Are original labels removed?
Store labels are removed, cut or blacked out in accordance to requirements of the chainstores. This is in order to protect the intellectual rights of the original high street chainstore and to prevent unauthorised store-returns. Labels are removed by the manufacturer or by ourselves before sale, however mistakes can happen and it is our customers' responsibility to ensure that all kimbles and original labels which can identify who the garment was made for are removed prior to sale! All items of clothing have labels with washing instructions and fabric content.
4. Where Ex-Chainstore goods have been delivered with labels, do we have to remove them?
Goods that were originally made for chainstores or on-line retailers are supplied under strict condition that all labels and tags are removed before resale. This is the responsibility of the purchaser of goods whose name or company appears on the sales invoice.
