MILAN — Men are catching up to women on one of their favorite activities: shopping.
According to a Fondazione Altagamma and Bain & Co. study, men’s spending on luxury goods grew at a faster rate than women’s in 2012 — 12 percent versus 10 percent, respectively. As a result, lifestyle brands have been heavily investing in men’s-only concepts, mainly in the U.S. and Asia, in their effort to attract a discerning and demanding male customer.

"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.
