NEW YORK — Coach Inc. wants a bigger piece of the men’s wear pie.
The plan, which will begin this year, includes additional freestanding stores, in-store shops within existing stores, a dual-gender retail concept and enhanced product offerings both in North America and overseas. All told, these moves are expected to double the men’s business in 2011, with further growth expected beyond that, according to Michael Tucci, president of the company’s North American retail division.
