Loose Threads Podcast: Focusing on the Rules of Business, Not the Glamour — with Vishaal Melwani of Combatant Gentlemen

RIchie Siegel and Vishaal Melwani for Loose Threads

On the 11th episode of the Loose Threads Podcast, I talk with Vishaal Melwani, CEO and co-founder of Combatant Gentlemen, about the brand's founding; how the team decided to build a suiting essentials brand meant to scale; how they incorporated technology into the company from the ground up; why they decided to vertically integrate to an extreme degree; how the brand approaches its own retail and relevant partnerships; how its products are priced affordably while still being produced ethically; what opportunities are on the horizon for the brand; and what have been some of the most exciting parts of the journey to build a global apparel brand.
