The men’s wear industry has been steadily gaining momentum and has now reached a critical point. Men are more savvy, interested and engaged in fashion than ever before. That means designers, brands and retailers need to be more carefully crafted and nuanced in the way they go to market. Rapid change is occurring across the menswear spectrum — from transformations in tailoring to the growing culture of street athleticism. Satisfying the varied tastes of today’s modern man is a challenge, but one with significant potential for businesses today.
Join a peer-to-peer exchange of ideas with thought leaders and disruptors from across the industry at the 2015 WWD Menswear Summit on March 26th. Curated by WWD editors exclusively for the designers, brands and retailers who are transforming the men’s industry.
