If you think the men’s online shopping space has reached a saturation point, well think again. Jackthread, a member-only online shopping community that offers private, limited-time sale events with the best brands in surf, skate, streetwear, and contemporary fashion is currently thriving at an amazing rate. Jackthreads wants to empower it’s members to feel like a million bucks without spending a million bucks.
Each day at 12pm EST, we post 3-4 new sales offering a completely unique assortment of apparel, sneakers, and accessories at up to 80% off retail prices.
Acquired by Thrillist in 2010, the members-only men’s online clothing retailer. As of 2011, Jackthreads is growing approximately 20% month-over-month. Since the acquisition, JackThreads’ membership has jumped from 150,000 in June 2010 to over 1.7 million members as of February 2012.
The member-only retail site is now doing around 13,000 orders a week! And 60 percent of those orders are from repeat buyers.
