FunkTees is Haryana based startup into the crowded designer T-shirts market. FunkTees has an in house design and manufacturing unit. The team wants to compete with the likes of Myntra and Inkfruit with better designs and quality. For FunkTees the online store is more of a test drive as the team wants to venture into offline space through exclusive outlets and network with existing offline retailers.
My first impression of the startup is a me too product. The team has a background of IT servicing and hence has ventured into this space without any differentiator. The designs fail to appeal and there is nothing beyond that in the offering. The prices are at par with the incumbent leaders in this space.
Of the current players Myntra has taken a clear lead in terms of traffic. Though given the high volatility, a major chunk of that still seems to be coming inorganically.
What’s your take on online T-shirt sellers? Do you buy from them? Does touch and feel still count here?
