How much does a pair of pants cost?
Fox News reports that some people in the U.S. are still using cotton clothing and that the cotton industry has been on a tear since the election.
But a report by the University of California, Berkeley, suggests that the cost of cotton clothing has gone down in the past year, according to Fox News.
The report states that in 2014, the average cost of a cotton shirt was $18.49, according the UB paper.
The average cost for a pair was $17.49 in 2015, according a separate study by the New York Times.
The price of cotton clothes in the United States has dropped by about $5 in the last year, but that’s only because retailers like Walmart, Gap and other retailers are selling cotton apparel at a discount, Fox News reported.
“The cotton industry is going through some tough times right now.
It’s not perfect, but they’re doing better than they’ve ever been,” John Macdonald, executive vice president of research and development at the American Cotton Council, told Fox News on Tuesday.
