WASHINGTON — Apparel imports to the U.S. fell in March, continuing a long downward import trend, while textile imports increased for the first time in several months, a report from the Commerce Department’s Office for Textiles and Apparel showed Thursday.
Apparel imports overall fell 4.8 percent in March to 1.6 billion square meter equivalents from a year earlier, signaling that retailers and brands are still maintaining lean inventories heading into late spring and summer.
