Anyone that has been to a comic book convention over the last 15 years has seen the booths, celebrities and characters overshadowed by Stylin Online’s “towers of t-shirts” . The multi-color retail extravaganza helps fans find the fashion from every genre show what they’re into (and sometimes what they’re not 😉 And each tower at each convention is the strategically constructed work of the biggest fan of all.
Meet James Stylin.
Like all fans, James found something that he was really into. In his case, “Transformers,” (he now even owns a bumble-bee yellow Transformers Chevrolet Camaro). Each convention he attended he would seek out the Transformers shirts he didn’t have and add them to his collection. Eventually, he collected them all, and began searching out other retail options that could provide shirts he didn’t already have.
Then he got the idea to make this hobby into a business. A big business.
James found the best licensed t-shirt designers in the market, and he developed a relationship with each to get the best selection of pop culture t-shirts, hoodies, hats, belt buckles and accessories that he could find. He also built a web site ( a very big web site) to handle the now more than 11,000 t-shirts in 20 different categories.
Today, James leads a team of more than 150 transportation specialists, roadies, managers and sales associates through 20 of the country’s leading comic book and gaming conventions (check the schedule on the home page for a complete and current listing).
In each city we find the fans that have been supporting us since we’ve opened, and the more than 4,500 new fans that we’ve made on Facebook that all need a great resource for their fanatical fashion needs.
Stylin Online also is a regular on the celebrity gift suites for many of the most popular awards shows, like the Teen Choice Awards, the EMMY’s, the American Music Awards, and the Oscar’s.
