A garment is one of the most important elements used to make fashion and make a better life style. Now a day’s all the people across the world use garments to be a fashionable person includes you! Currently reading my article….

Different type of garment are manufacturing every day by different manufacturer depending the necessity of consumer. People who use the garment always want a high quality and comfort garments in minimum budget. So there is now way to make cheap garments by considering the quality of garment. Before make a conformation deal with buyer a merchandiser make the calculation of manufacturing cost. The price of the garment to a buyer depends of the estimate costing of a garment. After make a calculation of a garments the manufacturer fix a price for buyer as it can be accept able to the buyer and so friendly to the current business environment.

Calculation of a garment cost? May be this is not so easy as you think because a full proof and authentic and profitable calculation need a vast of knowledge of fabric manufacturing process and process cost and many more. Here is some important point should acknowledge to a perfect merchandiser. Here you go.

Raw Material source

As like every other production; garment also need raw material and this big amount of raw material or fabrics is not so easy to get it when it is need to produce the garment. So merchandiser so be able to make a strong relationship with supplier so that the material could be get in time. If the raw material cause a big problem than it could be reduce the profit. This is the big reason of hike the estimate cost of garments I think.

Color, Size and quantity specification

How many quantity of garments buyer want to buy and how many color and size should include on the contract. Some time the color of fabric could be rare to get and could not be able the make such amount of garment as much as the buyer required. So before make a deal with buyer always the responsible merchandiser take a look on the stock and supplier. After talking the order from buyer if the merchandiser unable to get the fabric and produce the garment than the costing could be hike from the calculation amount.

Size specification

Every calculation is abortively if the merchandiser makes a mistake with size specification of garments. Size specification should follow according to buyer on manufacturing process other wiser it will make wrong size of garments and manufacturer gets a shock of damages other than they get profit.

Shipment date

Manufacturing process of garment must complete before the date of shipment. A senior merchandiser always fixes this date with buyer over phone, E-mail or Fax or any communication system. Shipment date should take seriously to do business all over the word because some time the buyer cancels the manufacturing order if the manufacturers companies miss the shipment date.


Most of buyer inspects the garments before get the delivery from manufacturer. Buyer makes an inspection by themselves or third party send by buyer. After get the full conformation of the quality of garments the manufacturer gets paid.

Terms and condition

Some time some buyer adds some terms and conditions during make the deal with manufacturer. Payment system, wash fastness of fabric, and minimum and quality of garments also include on this terms and condition. This terms and condition also like how we contract with a tailor when order for a dress. But this condition could be written on contract paper.
