The first quarter of 2013 was no picnic for men’s wear retailers as unpredictable weather patterns and continuing economic uncertainty took a toll on business. But the situation started to turn around in May, and customers returned to the stores, providing merchants with a much-needed uptick just in time for Father’s Day. As a result, sales were strong for the holiday, with accessories, dress shirts and other traditional gift items leading the way.
The rebound in business and the strong Father’s Day results have also brightened the mood of men’s wear stores about the upcoming fall season, with most retailers anticipating a strong second half.
