Le Tote is an online women’s clothing rental subscription service. Le Tote was founded in 2012 by Brett Northart.
In August 2019, Le Tote purchased Lord & Taylor for $100 million. Le Tote, founded in 2012, began by placing stores inside the struggling Lord & Taylor, eventually buying the company for a small amount.
Le Tote has competition from other clothing rental companies, such as Rent the Runway, however, Rent the Runway mainly focuses on the high end, event clothing, and Le Tote is more everyday or business clothing oriented.
Le Tote is especially popular for those interested in maternity wear, who believe that renting, rather than buying, maternity clothes is a smart financial move.
In late June 2020, Le Tote filed a lawsuit against Urban Outfitters, claiming that Urban Outfitters had violated a non-disclosure agreement created in 2018.
Le Tote maintains a corporate office in San Francisco, California.
