Rising cotton prices will cause a significant increase in the cost of clothing this next year. Hanesbrand along with others has announced increases as much as 10%.
The price of benchmark cotton is now up 80% from where it was a year ago. Raising prices is now a necessity.
How will this affect your shopping/what you wear?

I am sure WM will find a cheap supply ( probably heard JJB warning years ago and immediately enticed their Chinese farmers to plant additional crops) and undercut all other retailers. Americans will run in tidal wave fashion to scoop up the cheaper goods, in bulk.........some will get trampled in the process.
