The Drop, a London-based startup which makes menswear on demand, has raised £250,000 from early-stage VC Forward Partners.

Founded in 2016 by Jonathan Kruger, a manufacturing executive who oversaw Chinese production for some of the world’s biggest retailers, The Drop claims to make clothing in under three weeks.

Kruger has been joined by technical co-founder Stephen Stroud, who has worked as a senior software developer in various VC backed startups and financial institutions.

Jonathan Kruger, co-founder and CEO of The Drop, said: "We are so excited to have raised our early-stage funding and to be working alongside Forward Partners.
