WASHINGTON — Apparel imports to the U.S. continued to fall sharply, posting a 14.5 percent decrease in November from a year earlier to 1.8 billion square meters equivalents, as retailers and apparel brands kept a close eye on inventories heading into the holidays in light of a weak economy.
Combined apparel and textile imports fell 7.1 percent to 4.2 billion SME compared with November 2010, the Commerce Department’s Office of Textiles & Apparel said Friday, with textile shipments declining 1 percent to 2.4 billion SME against a year earlier.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
