Advanced Clothing Solutions (ACS), the U.K.’s leading circular fashion hub, adds Moss Bros as a new partner to its growing eBay shop.
Formal menswear specialist Moss Bros has enlisted the help of ACS to sell its preloved and unworn or returned suits, jackets and shirts.
Enabling Moss Bros to realise its circular fashion ambitions, the ACS eBay shop helps brands and retailers to create and quickly scale resale offerings. Monsoon was the first retail partner to launch on ACS’ eBay Shop, with more high-street names set to follow.
ACS cleans, sanitises and repairs second-hand items, making them resale ready, as well as arranging the logistics of item listing and delivery.
Brian Brick, Chief Executive Officer, Moss Bros, said: “Circularity is part of our heritage at Moss Bros. We started as a hire service, and we continue to offer that service to our customers for important events and occasions in their lives. We are always exploring new ways to expand and solidify our commitment to sustainability. Extending the life of clothing that might otherwise go unworn through this partnership with ACS is a great opportunity for us, and a perfect next step on our sustainability journey.”
Andrew Rough, Chief Executive Officer, ACS Clothing, said: “We are delighted to enable Moss Bros to realise its circular ambitions and help the retailer repurpose what would otherwise be classed as end-of-season inventory. eBay is famous for its vast offering of preloved clothing, and this scalable resale partnership with ACS will enable Moss Bros to capitalise on the sustainable fashion movement.
“As the biggest back-end logistics provider of resale garments in the UK., the ACS resale offering extends clothing life to minimise waste and keep current garments in circulation for longer. We take care of textile repairs, eco-friendly cleaning, quality control and more to get those preloved items back on the shelf.”
