One of the true pioneers in menswear e-commerce, Bonobos has grown into the largest fashion brand ever built on the web in the United States. We spoke with Melissa Baird, VP of Operations and Product Management, to discuss innovation in retail and the landscape of e-commerce.
Speeding perfectly packaged deliveries to eagerly awaiting customers is one of our favorite things to talk about – but that’s only half of the story. When it comes to e-commerce, outbound orders only “stick” about 15-20 percent of the time depending on product type. The rest of these orders are returned, perhaps because the customer has changed their mind, the item doesn’t fit, or maybe it just doesn’t look or feel as they imagined it.

Around the Quiet Logistics offices, you'll see a lot of us wearing Bonobos pants – some of the very best in the business, in our humble opinion. And we're not alone. Since its founding in 2007, Bonobos has become a go-to online resource for men's fashion. As customers of and partners to Bonobos, we're proud to be a part of their e-commerce success story.
The "q" in "quiet" could also very well stand for "quick," another of our favorite words and core values. As folks who pride ourselves on speed and efficiency, nothing tickles us like receiving emails such as this one, which recently popped up in the inbox of our CEO, Bruce Welty:
On Quiet's reading list this week: Andy Dunn's wonderfully honest, insightful, even surprising take on building a strong company culture, in the print and online versions of Business of Fashion. It's a must for any entrepreneur and every corporate leader. Kudos, Andy - we're proud to be your partner and participants in the innovative culture you've created at Bonobos.
Quiet's recommended Monday reading: a great piece by Fortune Magazine's Claire Zillman on the new renaissance in men's fashion, driven in part by e-commerce and a more socially-minded consumer.
