From new silhouettes in outerwear and a bevy of English fabrics to graphic prints and leather accents, the opportunities are bountiful for retailers seeking to grow their business this coming fall season.
Although holiday sales may have fizzled at the end, particularly for larger retailers, merchants are hopeful that 2013 will be a solid year as updated fashions lure customers to stores to update their wardrobes. Men’s wear in particular has benefitted from dramatic changes in silhouette and an explosion of color that has made many guys’ wardrobes look obsolete, a trend that retailers expect to spark additional sales this year.
