Today, Milan Clothing employs over 35 staff in the U.S. and overseas. The company operates offices and warehouses in eight countries throughout Southeast Asia, with plans to open two more offices in Bangladesh and Pakistan in 2008. Milan opened a New York sales office in January 2008.
Milan Clothing's goal is to be a one-stop shop for its customers. While the company carries men's, women's, and children's clothing, its forte has been children's wear from the beginning.
"As we move forward," Sham says, "we're adding a broader range of categories. Percentage wise, we carry about 70% kids, 20% men's, and 10% women's, but our men's and women's categories are growing tremendously for us."
In the kids' area, Milan is set oriented, carrying infant to girls size 14 and boys size 18. Denim is its strongest category in men's although the company also carries a lot of polo style shirts. The women's area is missy and plus-size oriented, mostly geared toward tops.
"We're very heavy into school uniforms," says Sham. "That's an area that's been growing for us throughout the country. We also produce scrubs. We're able to play with the styles to make them a little more fashion oriented."
