Following yesterday’s news of VF Corporation’s (vfc.com) impressive revenue gains for the first quarter, its Nautica women’s collection was notably low on the success scale. Accordingly, it has been announced that the company will cease the Nautica's women's sportswear business. The company said it has decided to devote its resources to the brand's men's sportswear segment.
