While Gap (GPS -17.5%) and Aeropostale (ARO -14.5%) have their own issues with fickle teen shoppers, broader concerns about cost pressures are punishing almost all retailers and apparel companies. PVH, RL and VFC are all down more than 4%. Among larger retailers, M -2.9%, KSS -3.2%, JCP -4.8%, SHLD -2.6%, TGT -1.2%.

    Apparently cotton prices are still going up, I see in the futures market that 20% of next years cotton is already sold.

     

    Unfortunately I don't see any good way to play this outside of the commodities themselves - not a lot of cotton farmers or manufacturers seem to be publicly traded.
