The category is worth Rs. 35 billion, of which the middle segment contributes nearly Rs. 10 billion.”

“The product range of our new brand '2 Go' would include track pants, shorts, sports socks and T-shirts. The brand would be targeted at 22- 27 year old urban males who aspire to own brands and are also value and style conscious,” he informs.
