But there are those who are completely optimistic. “The sanctions are unlikely to affect clothes and shoes,” says Dmitry Politov, Soho’s marketing analyst. - Unlike products, in our country these categories of goods are produced in very small quantities. The share of imports from America is also small. Perhaps the current situation in connection with an increase in patriotic moods will affect loyalty to specific brands. But I doubt that all those who previously purchased Tommy Hilfiger will refuse purchases in favor of Russian brands.
