Each issue of Apparel Tip Sheet provides journalists a number of articles across varying topics and accompanying “grab-and-go” multimedia assets, including consumer insight vignettes, photos and videos.

The current edition, which was distributed to apparel-industry writers at the top-100 newspapers and other selected outlets across the United States, includes articles about millennials’ impact on intimate apparel, the “athleisure continuum,” the rapid rise of the sports bra, fabric innovation and tips for keeping white T-shirts looking their best. Consumer insight vignettes take a look at men’s and women’s preferences for underwear silhouettes in 10 U.S. cities.
