Men's & Boys' Apparel Manufacturing in the US

Historically, the Men's and Boys' Apparel Manufacturing industry in the United States has experienced dwindling downstream demand due to its inability to compete with manufacturers abroad, creating stress for industry operators.

This trend trickled down to the manufacturing sector and exacerbated the reduction in revenue. In response, an increasing number of industry operators have opted to compete on the basis of quality rather than price. The move has proven successful over the past five years, as improving economic conditions domestically have driven rising consumer demand for industry products.
