Varied styles, comfort boosts T-shirt sales in India

Jain believes, there is no outfit in the world as simple andMonte Carlo to spread out further in Southern and Western India comfortable as a T-shirt. “T-shirts are becoming an essential part of the wardrobe of every woman,” he says further adding. Even though T-shirts are a basic piece of clothing, they are available in varied styles such as V- neck, boat neckline and collars. Moreover a T-shirt is considered to be one of the most dynamic and comfortable wear in the because of its soft knit fabric, fits, and the versatile use.” Monte Carlo also offers a huge variety of collars in its T-shirts, “We have the basic collar, Peter Pan collar, Chinese collar and high neck. Price points also vary from brand to brand but the basic and average starts from Rs 500 onwards,” he informs.

Versatile applications boost knitwear sales

According to Jain, women’s knitwear segment is growing from year to year. Knit wear fabrics are comfortable, stretchable, and easy to care. They also have the capacity to absorb moisture, and are apt for sports and yoga wear. Their adaptability in new categories such as athleisure, gym wear, yoga wear, comfort wear, et al, is luring many brands/retailers to cater to this growing knitwear market.

Women’s casual wear collection largely comprises tops made out of chiffon, cropped or utility pants, fashionable skirts, silk, velvet, cargo, capris and shirts made out of denim, silk and chambray, different washes of denim, leather or denim jackets, etc.

We have a comprehensive range of woollen, cotton, cotton blended, knitted and woven apparels for men, women and kids under the umbrella brand Monte Carlo,” Jain informs. “We continue to drive the trend towards active wear and are yet to develop our full potential in this segment. Our other emerging fashion trends include the growth in women’s wear, kids wear and casual wear,” he adds.

Monte Carlo also has an online presence, which has helped the brand immensely. “The advent of smartphones and affordable internet packages has boosted our online retail business. Mostly customers have time crunch and so they prefer to buy stuff online. Moreover, the discounts offered by online channels also aid in augmenting sales,” he adds.
