A cousin of mine asked, "What are overrun clothes?" I told her, as far as I know, these companies send an order to factories. In their order says the style, color, fabric, sizes and exact number of clothes they need. Now, the factory where they sent an order to will manufacture the items, but will exceed to the exact amount ordered to them. The purpose of this is to be able to control the quality and to give products that are free from any damages or whatsoever to customers. Next, the clothes are shipped, delivered and sold among authorized stores and outlets. Now, what happens to those items left in the factory? Of course, they will be distributed and sold in a lower price and they are what we call overrun clothes!
Among SM Malls, there are stores called SURPLUS and they are said to be selling affordable authentic apparel. While in college, I was introduced to Surplus store by my brother and sister-in-law. I thought the store sells second hand clothes. Haha. I know, I was that ignorant. So later, I realized that they indeed sell authentic clothes and in a cheaper deal. The only thing is, they can only sell designs from the previous seasons. Nevertheless, I am still a fan of SM's Surplus store. That is where I buy cheap clothes from my favorite brands like Victoria's Secret and Forever 21, though they have Collezione, Banana Republic and Hollister among others.
So, where do you usually shop for nice clothes in a cheaper budget? Do you also like SM's SURPLUS store?
