How does a regular guy from Ohio build a successful fashion company? According to Jason Ross, the entrepreneur who accomplished this feat, the opportunities are available if you are willing to take them.
He always had an interest in contemporary fashions and better streetwear for men, but he didn’t have the budget for them. For this reason, he reached out to the retailers and found out that they couldn’t liquidate their merchandise because they didn’t have a trusted vendor. Through this, Ross was able to build relationships and, in turn, develop JackThreads, a discount clothing site for men.
The business went on to be acquired by Thrillist, a popular lifestyle website and newsletter geared toward professional men. In this interview with Abby Johnson, Ross said that this move was one of the best he has ever made for the business.
