Menswear growing faster than womenswear in UK

However the men’s wear sector still only accounts for 27 per cent of the total clothing market, trailing behind women’s wear sales. Young men are more likely than young women to have bought footwear in the last quarter, with the rising popularity of trainers driving men’s footwear sales.

A 12.3 per cent increase in men’s wear sales has been forecast between 2016 and 2021. More retailers and brands have been tapping into the growing men’s wear market by expanding their men’s clothing offer as well as launching stores and separate websites dedicated to men’s fashion.
