NEW YORK — The summer doldrums have hit the men’s retail business, but merchants in town for New York Market Week are expecting sales to heat up when the temperatures drop.
With the Fahrenheit hitting triple digits in many parts of the country over the past several weeks, retailers have seen their sales slip as shoppers were more likely to hit the beaches or mountains than their local stores. But some early-fall goods have begun to garner interest among more fashion-conscious men, leading stores to be upbeat about their prospects for fall.
