When brothers Amar and Raghavendra Pawar were in college around 2008, they were looking to purchase t-shirts that cost Rs 300 or less for daily use. But none of the available brands could help. They were either priced too high, or the ones available within their budget were not so quality-driven. 

“We wanted to provide high-quality products at a reasonable price,” Raghav tells SMBStory

The brothers decided to investigate a business opportunity in the t-shirt trading space and opened a shop in Borivali West, Mumbai, and began selling t-shirts there. 

However, the breakthrough for the company came in 2013 when they decided to start contract manufacturing and come up with the brand name, Powerlook. 

According to the founders, apart from being affordable, Powerlook aims to give India a high-street, fashionable brand with nuances of the west.
