Tailored clothing and outerwear promise fresh looks for fall as companies heading to MAGIC target younger customers who want contemporary styling and flattering, slim silhouettes.
With the economy tanking and retailers hurting, tailored clothing makers are going after looks that will update a man’s dressy wardrobe, not give him more of the same. And, as Jim Petrino, brand manager for DKNY at Peerless Clothing, put it, “Business is being driven now by [the 25-to-35] age group. They have a sense of style. They grew up in a generation that paid attention to trends.”
