NEW YORK — The activewear influence, its acceptance with consumers and its impact on traditional coat styling and sales, will go a long way in determining this fall’s retail performance.
With ski jackets and down coats already a staple in outerwear wardrobes and snowboard looks gaining broader acceptance on the street, outerwear companies are taking stock. The introduction of Lands’ End jackets and other apparel at Sears stores this fall will also play a role in shifting market share and the $1.9 billion acquisition of Lands’ End in May is indicative of the activewear clout.
