Thrifty Threads

buyingclothesThe Friday File: In 1991, the average American bought 40 garments/year. Imports then began flooding the market, prices fell and the number of garments purchased/year steadily rose, peaking at 69 in 2005 with average spending/person reaching $860. With imports now accounting for 97.5% of all garment sales, prices are once again rising. In 2013, garment purchases totaled just 64/person but spending hit $907. I’m so bringing down the average!
