Dedicated follower of fashion: Revenue soars as men become more fashion conscious

The Online Men's Clothing Sales industry has flourished over the past five years, due to the growing acceptance of online shopping and changing attitudes towards men's fashion. While traditional retail industries have struggled with volatile consumer sentiment, online stores have benefited from consumers seeking choice and value. Global economic uncertainty and instability in financial markets have prompted many consumers to scale back expenditure and look for cheaper alternatives online. The online retail space offers a range of products at highly competitive prices, providing consumers with greater choice, flexibility and convenience without the geographical boundaries. Industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualised 10.9% over the five years through 2017-18, to $501.0 more.
