Mack Weldon CEO Brian Berger on the perks of selling sweatpants DTC

Sweatpants are a best-seller for Mack Weldon in normal times. But unsurprisingly, they're especially popular now, as many Americans have seen their commute to the office replaced by yet another day of getting comfortable at home.

"A lot of people are wearing sweatpants, that's for sure," Brian Berger, Mack Weldon CEO and founder, said on the Glossy Podcast.

The activewear brand's focus on e-commerce has also well-positioned it to weather the pandemic. The brand has only one brick-and-mortar store, at Hudson Yards, and no significant partnerships with department stores.

Berger talked about leveraging e-commerce, establishing redundancy in supply lines and being the "cheerleader-in-chief" to his staff.

Back to Basics — with Brian Berger of Mack Weldon

On the 35th episode of the Loose Threads Podcast, a show about the intersection of consumer, retail and commerce, I talk with Brian Berger, a co-founder of Mack Weldon, a company reinventing men's basics with a modern shopping experience and technical fabrics. Although there is a lot of activity in the basics space right now, most of it is incremental. Mack Weldon wanted to rebuild the entire shopping experience, as well as the materials that men rely on every day. Brian and I had a great talk about the founding story, how it’s incentivizing men to buy more from the brand, and how the brand landscape is rapidly shifting. I enjoyed talking with Brian about his time building Mack Weldon and how sometimes building things the hard way is the right way. His pragmatism about the potential of brands like Mack Weldon was also refreshing, and it seems that he’s architected the company to take advantage of that potential while also managing expectations. — Show Notes — Mack Weldon https://www.mackweldon.com/ Edited by George Drake Jr. — About Loose Threads — http://LooseThreads.com Join the newsletter: http://eepurl.com/buLQY9 Twitter: http://twitter.com/loosethreadscom The Loose Threads Podcast explores the intersection of consumer, retail and commerce.

Episode 33: Brian Berger, Co-Founder of Mack Weldon | The company reinventing Men's underwear and Men's essentials through great product design

Brian Berger, Co-Founder of Mack Weldon, steps on to the New York Launch Pod to discuss his men’s underwear and essentials company.

Frustrated by the experience of purchasing underwear in department stores and the feeling that brands were simply changing their products for the sake of changing them, Brian thought about creating a better customer experience as well as a better product. And after speaking to a whole bunch of guys about their underwear, Brian knew he was not alone.

Based upon common frustrations, Mack Weldon began re-inventing men’s essentials to make the best products.  Their underwear has waistbands inspired by cycling shorts so they don’t curl over, the undershirts have longer tails and higher armholes so they don’t untuck easily, and their fabrics are engineered to be softer and more breathable than cotton including a blend that includes silver to be antimicrobial and fight odor in a way that never washes out.  The brand itself is rooted in authenticity, consistency and innovation that has attracted accolades and a diverse audience, in addition to being a hit with the 25-45 year old urban, mass affluent market.

Brian was a high powered business executive with two kids and another on the way as he was founding Mack Weldon – meeting his co-founder Michael Isaacman, a leader in the apparel industry shortly thereafter.  Each took big professional and personal risk launching this new venture.  The combination of their respective talents and efforts has led to a company that has more than doubled in size over the past year and a growing product line.

Listen to the episode to hear exactly what makes Mack Weldon and their fabrics different, what it is like to be an entrepreneur after having a career and a family, and even more about the underwear business than you might haven even thought possible.
