Suite 160 Shoes and Apparel
Posted: Mar 04 2015
Suite 160 Shoes and Apparel has been one of the best things about living in Las Vegas for LAYOP Clothing Company. Since 2012, our business relationship has blossomed into a strong partnership. Suite 160 is the pioneer of exclusive sneaker boutiques in Las Vegas. Now, in its 14th year of business, Suite 160 has become the "OG" of the Las Vegas sneaker culture.
LAYOP was introduced to Suite 160 through a mutual friend in the local fashion industry. At this time, Suite 160 had never heard of LAYOP. As we presented our line sheet and samples to the owner, he was hesitant accepting a new brand, especially one he was unfamiliar with. We pitched LAYOP to be showcased inside Suite 160 for only one month. Even though the owner loved the quality of our t-shirts, he didn't think we would sell much (if any) during the first month of business.
After month one, our merchandise moved slowly, however, we did exceed our sales projections. We increased our sales each month, which gave Suite 160 some confidence in the Live At Your Own Pace brand. Summer 2013 was the tipping point for us: we sold out of each t-shirt style that month (over 15 different t-shirt styles). Two years later, we've never looked back and we thank Suite 160 for believing in us - we really appreciate being a part of the family.
LAYOP Clothing Company and Suite 160 have become synonymous with one another. We cross promote each other's brands on a weekly basis. Because of our success rate, people always think Suite 160 is "The LAYOP store:" they ask for Dre-T and JimDre all the time.
If you're ever in Las Vegas, please stop by Suite 160 Shoes and Apparel. It is located at Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino (inside the Shoppes at Mandalay Place-2nd floor) on the Las Vegas Strip. It's the best place on The Strip for exclusive sneakers and t-shirts. Bonus: you might see one of the Dre's during your visit. Make sure you take a pic and post it! :-)
