Description

“The beginning of 2022 has seen significant pent-up demand for menswear as lifestyles reverted to more normalised routines. However, as the income squeeze begins to bite, spending on the category is likely to be hit as people prioritise spend on essential items and categories such as travel and leisure that they cut back on during the pandemic. As value for money becomes of increasing importance, it is crucial that retailers understand their customer base and their changing priorities when buying men’s clothing, with a growing focus on price, durability, as well as additional service elements.”

– Tamara Sender Ceron, Senior Fashion Analyst, April 2022
