Why doesn't any store carry FCF gear but themselves?

    I like Full Contact Fighter gear but it is way too overpriced to buy directly from them, I believe that if RioFightwear, Casca Grossa and etc... were to sell their gear, it would be a bit cheaper, because if you look at bas rutten's store that sells those Twins gloves for $44 and then look at a retailer of them they go for about $25. Is it because they really won't do business or you store owners don't want to? I think it could be a great addition to your inventory, but this is just from my buyer's perspective. Thank you.

    I think that it's just the way they like to run their company. Take for example, The Gap or Abercrombie & Fitch, they sell their stuff through their own stores exclusively. mmawarehouse.com does carry some FCF stuff though.

    FCF stuff is pretty cool. MMAWarehouse.com is supposed to be pretty good if you want some FCF stuff like KungFuCow said.

    But with most companies like that they will not let dealers be a dealer unless they stick to their prices. That goes with advertising ofcourse, they can do specials sometimes and such but you have to advertise their same price.

    If you control all or most of your items being sold you control the price pretty much completely. instead of making a little on wholesale they make the jump from manufacturer to retail. great profit margin. I would bet the other companys that sell there stuff only make a little on them anyway that way they have to sell at the retail price to make any money.

    I have a pair of XXXL board shorts and they fit a maybe 40 inch waste nothing bigger. They sweats shirts and beanies are top quality I can atest to that and they have a bad ass logo.
