My name is Pierce Sloan and I’m the owner of Bearwear. My background is in ePayments, Fraud, Compliance and I’ve achieved a Business Studies Degree from UCD. But enough about me. Let me tell you how Bearwear began;
A few years back it was approaching my dad’s birthday and I asked him what he wanted. His response was clear and concise, “I don’t want any shirts because the ones people buy for me are always too small”. My dad is a 3XL but people would always buy him 2XL clothing as it’s the size that regular high street retailers goes up to. Then I tried to think of a plus size shop in Dublin and I couldn’t find one. I then tried to think of one in Ireland and I couldn’t. So I looked online then to find that the choice for large men was limited and what was available was overpriced. The idea for Bearwear was born.
Over the next few months I had a website created and began sourcing different suppliers for plus size clothing. Finally after 4 months of hard work and a bit of luck along the way Bearwear went live in November 2014. We’ve been trading online since and are continuing to build our product offerings to customers. The Bearwear motto is ‘Size Shouldn’t Mean Compromise’ – you shouldn’t overpay, you should feel happy with what you’re wearing and placing an order should be easy and pain free.
I hope you like the site and if you’ve any question or need help with anything then just send me an email and I’d be more than happy to help.
