Inflation rates of men’s clothing fall

The high levels of inflation seen this time last year have fallen away to a lower level – but while this is good news it must still be noted that the cost of living continues to rise. The latest Consumer Prices Index data from the Office for National Statistics reveals that inflation fell to 2.5 per cent in August – when it was at 5.2 per cent in September last year.

Petrol prices and heating bills continue to climb, but the good news is that clothing costs are increasing at a lower rate than they have been in recent months. However, with real wage growth still not matching rising costs, it is as important as ever to shop smartly if you want to save money on clothing.

Larger men may often find themselves hampered when it comes to searching out bargains, as they are restricted for choice. But the rise of sites such as Jacamo, which specialise in clothes for larger men, is helping to provide more options.

To get the most from your clothing spending, look to make the most of men’s staples – these are versatile items which can lend themselves to a number of different looks and give you more bang for your buck. Also, look at shopping out of season – the last of this year’s summer stock is going for bargain prices and so those who plan ahead will also make savings.
