WASHINGTON — Apparel and textile imports to the U.S. fell 1.3 percent in September, as weak demand drove a year-over-year decline in imports of holiday merchandise from seven of the top 10 suppliers, according to a report on Thursday from the Commerce Department’s Office of Textiles and Apparel.
Combined apparel and textile shipments declined to 4.8 billion square meter equivalents in the month compared to a year earlier, with apparel imports down 0.9 percent to 2.3 billion SME and textile shipments falling 1.6 percent to 2.5 billion SME.

"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.
