How so? It could just be that they're getting a huge shipment of new FW19 stuff and need to clear out some stock.
They've never run sales in this capacity before. In the past, they would generally run a season end sale at maybe 40%, twice a year, and have it last for maybe a week or so. They've been in constant sales for awhile now. Add this to the fact that they ran an "invest in Unionmade" campaign last year and it seems like they've been hurting and are finally liquidating stock to close up shop.

More telling to me is that, unless these don't work the way they used to, they're likely violating MAP for a wide variety of their products, which I only see when a store is about to close. This one reminds me of Carson Street and Gentry's end sales, though hopefully it's better-managed than the latter.

There's barely anything left on the UM site. I think this is it.

50% off Alden isn't too common, even for the ugly stock they carry.

I was curious so I went back and looked at their investment pitch. It looks like they didn't reach their funding goal, so hopefully everyone got their money back. I found this interesting:
Unionmade has financial statements ending December 31 2017. Our cash in hand is $58,000, as of September 2018. Over the three months prior, revenues averaged $430,493/month, cost of goods sold has averaged $292,966/month, and operational expenses have averaged $201,200/month.

Yeah man, they cleared out quick. If they're shutting down, that's really quite sad.
Dunno. Their purchasing choices were getting increasingly odd/poor. I'm not sure what happened but there was no coherence, no point of view, the stuff they chose wasn't really on trend or timeless either. It was just...not good. I used to find stuff I liked there and the last few years their buyers just made terrible choices.
