In regard to assortment, if you were looking for Amazon to be knocked off the leader post, we are sorry to report that they are still top dog. The depth and breadth of the clothing and footwear assortment available from Amazon is expansive to say the least. With that said, 2016 offers many excellent shopping destinations.
Large Scale Online Destinations for Clothing in 2016:
Amazon: Amazon needs no introduction. All you need to know is that they sell plenty of clothes, shoes, jewelry, beauty products and fashion accessories. If you haven't heard of them, I don't understand how you are even able to read this page.
Jet: Jet is one of the few online retailers that has dared to step into the ring with Amazon. Although they are off to a good start, they certainly have a long way to go. As per our understanding from an article read back in July 2015, Jet has a clever “concierge” service that helps Jet create the illusion of having millions of products for sale. While the company continues to build inventory and add retail partners they use an interested and fair method. When a customer buys a product that isn't available from Jet or its partners, a representative in the background buys it from another website and has it shipped directly to the customer. It is said thatthis service will dwindle over time as Jet signs up more partners and offers more inventory. Honestly, we are not sure if that method is part of the long or short term business model.
