Buyer’s Guide

OEM Clothing Manufacturer: The Ultimate Guide For Fashion Brands

Looking to launch a new clothing line or add some new pieces to your existing collection? If so, you'll want to consider working with an OEM clothing manufacturer. But with so many options out there, how do you know which one is right for you? OEM clothing manufacturers are those that produce products for other brands to sell under their own labels. In other words, they're essentially white-label manufacturers. And while there are plenty of great options out there, not all OEM clothing manufacturers are created equal. In this guide, we'll provide you with everything you need to know about working with an OEM clothing manufacturer, including how to find the right one, what to expect during the manufacturing process, and how to negotiate terms. Let's get started!

1. What Is OEM Clothing Manufacturer?

An OEM clothing manufacturer is a company that manufactures clothing for other companies to sell under their own name.

OEM stands for the original equipment manufacturer, so these companies are the original creators of the clothes that they produce. This can be contrasted with a retail clothing company, which sells clothes that have been created by someone else.

OEM clothing manufacturers often:

  • have more specialized knowledge and experience when it comes to producing clothing, which can result in a higher quality product.
  • have more control over the production process, which can lead to a more efficient and streamlined manufacturing process.
  • flexible when it comes to customizing clothing for their clients.

2. The History of the OEM Clothing Industry

The history of the OEM clothing industry can be traced back to the early 1800s. At that time, most clothing was made by hand, which resulted in a high level of inconsistency and poor quality. In the early 1900s, the sewing machine was invented, which made it possible to produce clothing at a much faster rate.

This led to the development of the clothing industry as we know it today. During the mid-1900s, the garment OEM industry began to boom. This was due to a number of factors, including the growth of the global economy and the rise of mass production techniques.

Today, the OEM clothing industry is still going strong. There are now more OEM clothing manufacturers than ever before, and they are constantly innovating and evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of their clients.

3. OEM vs. ODM: What’s the Difference?

When it comes to manufacturing clothing, there are two different approaches that businesses can take: OEM and ODM. So, what’s the difference between OEM and ODM? Here’s a quick rundown:


Original Equipment Manufacturer Original Design Manufacturer
OEM, or original equipment manufacturer, is a type of manufacturing where a company produces products that are then sold under another company’s brand name. In other words, the OEM company is just the manufacturer of the product, not the designer. ODM, or original design manufacturer, is a type of manufacturing where a company designs and produces products that are then sold under its own brand name. In other words, the ODM company is both the designer and manufacturer of the product.
Cons Pros Cons
You have complete control over the final product since you’re the one designing it. You’ll also have less control over the manufacturing process since you’re not working directly with the garment OEM factory Many ODM clothing manufacturers are willing to work with small businesses and startups, as they typically don’t have the same minimum order requirements as OEMs. The downside of working with an ODM is that you won’t have as much control over the design process.
OEM apparel manufacturers can be more flexible with MOQs (minimum order quantities) since they don’t have to worry about investing in their own brands. ODM companies usually have a shorter lead time than OEMs, as they don’t need to wait for approval from the brand before starting production. ODM companies typically have less brand recognition than OEMs, which can be a drawback if you’re looking to build a strong brand identity for your business.
It can be less expensive to go the OEM route since you’re not paying for things like marketing and packaging. ODMs typically have more flexible MOQs (minimum order quantities), which can be helpful for small businesses and startups that are working with limited budgets. Working with an ODM can be more expensive than working with an OEM, as you’ll typically need to pay for the design of your product as well as the manufacturing costs.
ODM clothing companies often offer a one-stop-shop service, which means they can manage the entire clothing manufacturing process from start to finish.

So, there you have it! A quick overview of the difference between OEM and ODM. Hopefully, this has helped you to better understand the two manufacturing approaches and which one might be right for your business.

4. What To Look For in an OEM Contract: A 6-Point Checklist

When you’re looking for an OEM clothing manufacturer, it’s important to find one that offers a great contract. Here’s a checklist of what to look for:

#1 Minimum Order Quantities (MOQs)

One of the most important things to look for in an OEM contract is minimum order quantities (MOQs). This is the minimum amount of product that you must order from the manufacturer in order to receive a discount.

Some manufacturers will have very high MOQs, which can be difficult for small businesses to meet. However, there are also manufacturers that have low MOQs, which can be more manageable.

#2 Pricing

Another important thing to look for in an OEM contract is pricing. Make sure to review the prices of the products you’re interested in and compare them to other manufacturers. You should also ask about any discounts that may be available, such as volume discounts or early payment discounts.

#3 Payment Terms

Another important thing to consider is the payment terms. OEM contracts typically require a deposit, which is usually 50% of the total order value. The balance is then due upon delivery of the goods.

It’s important to review the payment terms carefully to make sure you’re comfortable with them. You should also ask about any additional fees, such as shipping costs or duties.

#4 Delivery Timeframes

When you’re working with an OEM garment manufacturer, it’s important to know about their delivery timeframes. This way, you can ensure that your products will be delivered on time and in the quantities you need.

Some manufacturers may have long delivery timeframes, while others may be able to deliver your products more quickly. It’s important to find a manufacturer that can meet your needs in terms of delivery timeframes.

#5 Warranties and Guarantees

Finally, you should also look for a manufacturer that offers warranties and guarantees. This way, you can be sure that your products will meet your expectations in terms of quality and performance.

Some manufacturers may offer money-back guarantees or replacements if your products are not up to par. Others may offer extended warranties for an additional fee. It’s important to find a manufacturer that offers the right level of protection for your needs.

#6 Termination Clauses

Last but not least, you should also look for a manufacturer that has fair termination clauses. This way, you can be sure that you’re not stuck in a contract if the manufacturer doesn’t meet your expectations.

Some manufacturers may have unfair termination clauses that favor the manufacturer. Others may have more reasonable termination clauses that protect both parties. It’s important to find a manufacturer that has termination clauses that are fair and reasonable.

These are just a few of the things to look for in an OEM contract. Make sure to review the contract carefully before signing anything. And if you have any questions, be sure to ask the manufacturer for clarification to avoid any misunderstandings.
