Fitness fanatics and couch potatoes alike helped elevate active apparel to healthy increases in the first eight months of 2013.
Activewear sales grew 7.2 percent, to $17.64 billion, in the period from January to August, a rate of expansion that was twice as brisk as the 3.6 percent increase in overall apparel sales registered during the first seven months of the year, when clothing sales hit $106.57 billion.
