I can manufacture jeans/denim clothes better and cheaper than most. How can I sell LOADS?

Hey guys. Long story short.

I'm brazilian, my jeans clothing store is in Rio de Janeiro. I have 27 years old. The company was from my family and I'm assuming the company after 7 years of hard working (helping) with them.

My family had 40 years of INDUSTRY and Commerce of denim/jeans, where they manufactured for big companies here (b2b) and for there own store (local b2c) it was A HUGE success, I mean REALLY HUGE there was buses outside the door, we opened sometimes at 3am because there was a bus full of people from 12+ hour distance outside wanting to buy. But sadly after years they broke and they are bankrupted (long story) and the brand is damaged, but still alive and people from the city recognize, because it was a really really big hit here.

I decided to move on by continuing the brand since it was a huge success, but sadly I'm REALLY small right now. Lost like 75% of the physical/space size (of the store) and probably 90% of the revenue.

40 years of creating and manufacturing jeans is a long time. I'm learning a lot with my father again. But so far I don't have any BIG sales not counting the store sales (where I sell like 1 or 2 pieces of clothes for a person and the revenue yet is not really big so far).




So, in resume: I'm continuing the brand from my family. I have the jeans store/shop (revenue is not yet the amount of money I want). But I also have the industry (it is in the back of the store) where I have my father's 40 years old jeans manufacturing know-how. In the meantime i'm giving shots to e-commerce and internet sales (not even 5% of the sales I wish)

I want to sell products to a big company, by creating WHATEVER piece of denim/jeans clothing that they want. I can have a really good price. And I have the know-how and the machines.

So, how can I sell better ? How can I sell to another countries? How to get a big sale?

I know jeans are expensive in Western Europe. Maybe someone there can chip in with an answer on why is it? It might be a tariff thing which is hard to work around. This could be a good opportunity for expansion.
All I know is when I was in college my friends from Norway and Germany would buy tons of jeans in the US and bring them back home for family and friends since they were half the cost they would be if they bought them back home. I've heard the same thing with my friend who has cousins in Italy-- they buy tons of clothes when they are hear to bring back home.
