French clothing manufacturers are performing far better than counterparts in the UK. On average, French clothing firms are stronger financially, with essentially less debt giving them an edge. Market is also expanding faster in France than Britain, with average sales growth standing at 7.3 % compared to 0.8% across The Channel.

individual companies has been at the expense of others. This has been feeding intense
competition and fuelling reduced margins.
