WASHINGTON — The volatility in cotton prices this year continued to put upward pressure on U.S.-made apparel prices in September.
Prices on domestically produced apparel rose 0.7 percent in September compared with August and were up 4.6 percent over September 2010, the U.S. Labor Department’s Producer Price Index showed Tuesday. Men’s apparel prices rose 2.7 percent in September compared with August and were up 8.7 percent against a year earlier.
