In 2020 and prior, the competition was and is fierce. Many long loved Australian clothing brands have fallen by the wayside and more may well falter, what with bushfires and now the coronavirus dubbed COVID-19. This, together with increased competition from international brands and international retailers have produced a landscape in Australia where only the very best local retailers and wholesalers will survive.
As fashion trends evolve, the casualisation of businesswear continues to transform. Such as the notable decline of ties and suits and the counter-reaction of men’s shirts online now leaning towards smart casual to broaden the shirt offer. Also, the increased choice of body-fits, whether the shirt is slim fit, contemporary fit or classic fit has split the customer market into targeted groups. There is fierce competition between all business shirt brands. The conclusion surely is Australian clothing wholesalers and retails have got a massive challenge to thrive and survive. Learn about the latest business shirts trends.
