We’re all familiar with the big companies on the list: Gap, Levi’s, TJ Maxx, H&M, etc. The new category is called “largest men’s clothing brands” and it includes more than 100 brands from smaller retailers like Wal-Mart, Trader Joe’s, and Macy’s.
That list includes brands that aren’t big enough to compete with the giants, but if you know where to look, you might find some gems.
We ranked the top 10 men’s clothes brands based on size and features and included the brands’ revenue and sales in the last 12 months, with the exception of a few brands that were included in the top 20 for the first time.
We looked at a few things: the size and weight of the items; how many people own them, including their age; and the size of the company.
But we also tried to include products that are popular or well-known, or have been around for awhile.
This year’s winners are based on sales and revenues for the last six months, which makes this year’s list look a lot more impressive than usual.
The best part: all the brands in this year-end list are women-owned.
The big winners: Gap: The brand is still the biggest seller, but it is now the biggest among men’s brands.
That means its revenues are up by more than 25% over last year.
Levi’s: The Levi’s brand is one of the biggest sellers among men, but its revenues have gone up a lot this year.
That’s because the company has expanded into a women’s line of jeans, jackets, and shoes.
TJ MaxX: The TJ Max x brand is another top seller, as are the men’s and women’s jeans.
Macy’s: Macy’s is also a leader among men.
The brand has become one of Macy’s biggest sellers, but the company’s revenue rose by more over last 12-months than last year, thanks to more sales of men’s apparel.
The biggest losers: Wal-mart: The retailer has seen its sales decline in recent years, and it’s now in the midst of a bankruptcy restructuring.
TJMaxx: The men’s line at TJMax x has fallen a lot since last year’s ranking.
The company has been working on a new line, and now the only brands on the men list that sell directly are Wal-Marts.
H&m: The H&M brand has dropped in sales and revenue for some time, and this year the company plans to make a move to a women-only line.
TJL Brands: The top men’s men’s shoes brands aren’t on this year
