NEW YORK — Men’s retailers are hoping they can continue to shake off the still-fragile economy and that the strong sales they have been enjoying for more than a year will continue into this fall and holiday.
Despite daily reports of continued economic weakness in the U.S. and overseas, merchants shopping the New York market this week remained upbeat. Strength in the consumer response to tailored clothing, modern furnishings and updated sportswear buoyed their spirits as they prowled the aisles of Project, ENKNYC, Capsule and MRket for the items to sustain the momentum into next year.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
