About RG Riley


RG Riley is a family-owned, bulk tee shirt and sweatshirt supplier specializing in bulk wholesale clothing including closeouts and irregulars.  For over 80 years, we have continued to provide the cheapest pricing and most proficient customer service in the wholesale tee shirt industry. Our wholesale tee shirts and clothing are sold in bulk quantities primarily for charities and resellers. In the 1940's and 50's Raymond George Riley started the business by manufacturing ladies hosiery and stockings. After the war Ray's sons grew the business by becoming importers and jobbers and sourcing lower cost inventory in Asia. Grandsons came into the business and once again sought lower cost apparel by signing agreements to purchase closeout and excess clothing from some of the largest brands like Hanes, Bassett Walker, Pannill and Lee. The fourth generation is upon the company and bringing in advanced technology to bring lower cost clothing to a greater number of companies, entrepreneurs and charitable organizations around the world.


Today we specialize exclusively in first quality closeout clothing and hand-graded irregular apparel from some of the leading manufacturers around the world, including Hanes, Dickies, Fruit of the Loom, Jerzees, Anvil, Gildan, Russell, Champion, and more. The demand for lower priced bulk clothing goes hand in hand with buying closeout and irregular apparel.
