THE PRESUMPTION that it was mainly the terrorist attacks that caused clothing consumption in France to decline by 1.1 per cent in January deserves to be questioned. This is because the incidence of comparable attacks is likely to increase everywhere in the coming years as IS propaganda radicalizes more gullible believers. If it is assumed that, when tourist purchases are included, the Paris area accounts for 20 per cent of French apparel consumption, the national decline suggests that consumption in Paris could have slumped by as much as 5 per cent, which seems very unlikely. The attacks took place in peripheral areas where most people shop mainly for food and essential services and it is hard to believe that Parisians slashed their apparel purchases because they were afraid to go outdoors, or preferred to follow the news on TV. It follows that, if our assumptions are correct, neither the January events in France, nor future terrorist acts elsewhere, are likely to reduce significantly consumption of clothing in general and of innerwear in particular.
