Custom-made: Diverse industry offerings and higher disposable income drive revenue growth

Revenue growth in the Formal Menswear Retailing industry has been stable over the past five years. The rising prominence of office-based work has fuelled demand for industry products over the period. The increasing wealth of Australian consumers, the declining cost of formal menswear, and consumers' increased access to information and options regarding men's fashion online have boosted demand. A gap in the menswear market has led prominent industry players to add custom-made tailoring to their product ranges, which has been well received by consumers. Growth in demand has brought new players to the industry and prompted operators to expand their store networks. Industry revenue is expected to rise at an annualised 2.2% over the five years through 2018-19, to $368.5 more.
