A new study released Tuesday found the cotton face mask and cotton shirt industry is the top-selling apparel for men in the United States.
The study, commissioned by the American Crop Insurance Association (ACC), a trade group, examined clothing brands in a list of products that are sold in major U.S. retail chains.
The ACC’s report is based on data collected by the consulting firm eMarketer and found that clothing and accessories for men were among the top 10 products for men’s brands in 2018.
The apparel industry has seen a sharp rise in popularity over the past decade, with the number of men in North America shopping for clothing more than doubling between 2009 and 2018, according to the U.K.-based consumer advocacy group, the National Retail Federation.
In 2018, a staggering 4.3 million men visited eMarker’s website to search for their next cotton jacket, compared to 2.7 million in 2017.
In 2020, that number jumped to 2 million, the ACC report found.
The top-performing apparel brands on eMarkers’ list were Nike, Nike+ and Under Armour.
The top 10 items were cotton shirts, wool hats, cotton socks, cotton gloves, cotton sweaters and cotton underwear.
Among men, Nike’s wool jackets and socks and Under Armor’s cotton gloves were the top three.
But the apparel industry is experiencing an economic downturn, with companies laying off workers and laying off sales staff.
In an interview, Kevin Nesbitt, vice president of research and marketing at eMarkets, said he was excited about the research.
“Cotton is a very resilient industry, and the fact that we’re seeing this trend of declining sales and employment, that’s great news for cotton companies,” Nesbs said.
“There’s been a lot of discussion about the economic impact of this, and this research is really about how we can help companies understand and react to these changes.”
The research, which included a survey of 1,000 U.T. students, found that about one-third of U.s. men and women ages 18 to 29 said they had seen a decline in their own ability to buy a new shirt or coat.
A third of women and a quarter of men surveyed said they didn’t know if they were able to find a new cotton shirt or jacket that matched their clothing preferences.
The study also found that a quarter said they were not able to buy the new apparel because of low sales and sales staff shortages.
The clothing industry has been a hotbed of criticism for years, with accusations of sexism and sexism-related practices.
In 2015, the U,T.
student group “Cotton Is Killing Us” petitioned the U.,T.
College administration to boycott apparel from brands that advertise to women, citing alleged sexism and discrimination in the industry.
The ACC report also found a drop in the number who have used the internet in the past year.
This was largely due to a drop-off in women who are buying clothes online, according the ACC.
The survey also found the number selling clothing online was higher in the Midwest and South, which have high concentrations of men.
The survey also indicated that men are less likely to use social media in the age of social media.
While women are more likely to socialize with friends and family, men are more willing to do so in public spaces, the study found.
“While men have made a comeback in terms of social engagement, it’s not the same,” Nester said.
“The apparel business is struggling to adapt to changing technology and social norms, which means men and boys are not taking advantage of the opportunities that come along with being able to shop online,” he added.
