FAQ

  1. Who is Usolo Outfitters?

Usolo was founded in Victoria, BC in 2019 as a curated lifestyle products for young professionals, primarily refined-casualwear. We're about individual style and perfect mix. We round out our selection with pieces from brands we love – ones who obsess about practical design and upscaled look as much as we do. We begin our selection process by thinking about our customers and their real life. Our goal is to combine timeless styles, modern cuts, and styling offers with as little environmental impact as possible. And last but not least, we think shopping should be fun and beyond the ordinary.

Usolo’s priority is to provide unique solutions to struggles our customers face in their daily lives and to support ethical practices throughout our supply chain to make quality clothing that lasts. With poor factory conditions around the world and the threat of irreversible climate change, we fully recognize the urgency to do our part in taking care of people and the planet but we’re only getting started.

In our long-standing commitment to reducing our ecological footprint, our decisions on mindful packaging reinforces our belief in this journey.

 

  1. What brands do you carry?

The primary brands we carry are: Koton, and People by Fabrika. However, this will continue to increase in near future.

  1. Do you have any physical stores?

Currently, we operate only an online store.

  1. Is Usolo Outfitters sustainable?

We make every effort to minimize waste at every step. We use environment-friendly materials to prepare and package our clothes. Our 100% Compostable Mailer is a great step towards sustainable packaging, and can be composted both at home and commercially. Also our totally compostable shipping labels and wrapping paper stickers do not have a protective top coat. This is to ensure that the labels are not eco-toxic and are aligned with ASTM D6400 compostability requirements. A top coating helps prevents high sensitivity but it also prevents micro-organisms entering the material which are necessary for efficient composting. Not done! Our White Tissue Paper is made entirely from post-consumer & post-industrial content and is recyclable and naturally biodegradable itself, of course.

Also, as part of our commitment to reducing environmental impact, we have eliminated paper invoices. Your Shipping Confirmation & E-Receipt emails are considered your receipt now.

Gift orders will as well be sent via e-mail with a personalized gift message.

What's more, we work hard to ensure that our inventory is well-managed in order to save materials and reduce overstock.

As we grow, we will continue to add new ways to integrate sustainability into our daily operations and business practices.
