The menswear industry is in the midst of a seismic shift, with brands and retailers feeling the effects in equal measure. As looks become more refined, brands—including iconic industry giants—are rethinking offerings to respond to consumers' changing tastes. Private labels wield more influence, and new opportunities abound in the American luxury market. Mission critical for retailers is reconsidering the traditional sales model���including the restructuring of the legendary sales floor and the development of marketing that addresses new, omni-channel selling.

Do you want your brand to simply keep up—or are you looking to lead? Featuring insight from and about trailblazing people, products, brands, and strategies, the Fairchild Fashion Media Men���s Wear Summit offers tools for succeeding—and leading—in a shifting market.

�� Leadership
