We've moved office locations and are now back from our podcast hiatus. Join, Eric Rachlin, Jon Cilley, Nick Heron and Nico Bishop to understand our recent retail survey and what it means for apparel and footwear companies.
Currently, 23 percent of all clothing purchased gets returned, 64 percent say incorrect fit is the major reason for returning clothing, and 85 percent would purchase at least one to two more articles of clothing during a single transaction if they could ensure a proper fit. So how can we resolve these issues? Listen in to find out. We'll also discuss our recent move, magic versus illusions and more.
