Learn about the Apparel Strategist Statistical Review

The Apparel Strategist is organized into logical sections containing graphs, tables, and commentary on;
  • Retail Sales and Store Performance - This is where it all starts...retail sales and inventory growth are the building blocks for all other aspects of the industry. In this section we track these retail growth trends, comparable store sales, the performance of individual companies, and discuss their impact on the other business segments of the industry.
  • Consumer Data - When all is said and done, how much money gets spent, and where it gets spent, is decided by one thing and one thing only...consumers! In this section we look at consumer confidence, debt, spending, price inflation or deflation.
  • International Trade In Textiles and Apparel - is always dynamic...which countries are expanding their trade with the US and which are losing out? This section includes textile and apparel imports and exports and analyzes the data by country to let you know who's getting the growth and who's giving it up.
  • Supply Side - An analysis of the manufacturing and wholesale side of the business, including textile and apparel sales and inventory, employment, production and capacity utilization, and pricing trends from raw materials to finished apparel.
  • Financial Performance & Company News - Our coverage here includes the Strategist Retail and Wholesale stock indexes (compared to the Dow Industrials for perspective), stock market gainers and losers, and insightful commentary on company news and earnings.
  • Company Spotlight - A unique profile of a newsworthy company, in the Spotlight we evaluate a company's performance, strategy, and future prospects... always informative and certainly provocative.
  • Outlook - Here we tie it all together and review the major events that are confronting the industry. As always, the focus is on the events that will have the largest impact on profitability and the strategies necessary to deal with them.
