NEW YORK — The tough economic times and continuing difficulties in legwear are leading many makers to take bold steps to get and retain business.
Levante, for example, just started a new program guaranteeing 70 percent margins for retailers who commit to big programs, while Hanes is offering more products that fall into the innerwear realm, such as seamless thongs and boy-cut panty underwear that pulls in the tummy.
