Activewear’s strength has spelled the difference between an up and down year for U.S. apparel sales.
Figures released by The NPD Group of Port Washington, N.Y., Wednesday showed women’s, men’s and children’s apparel sales up 0.5 percent for the 12 months ended in June to about $206.3 billion.

"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.
