Transcript of Levis

→ Invented in 1873, Levi's® jeans are the original, authentic jeans.
→ Most successful, widely recognized
→ Captured the attention, imagination and loyalty of generations of diverse individuals.

→ Launched in 1986, Dockers® brand products and marketing played a major role in the creation of a new apparel category.
→ Dockers® became the No. 1 khaki pant brand in the United States .

→ Launched in 2003 exclusively for consumers who shop in the mass channel.
→ The brand gives value-conscious consumers access to high-quality, affordable and fashionable jeans wear from a company and name they trust.
  Two types of new entrants:
- High-end designer jeans manufacturers: The designer jeans came from fashion houses such as “Tommy Hilfiger”. Many consumers were willing to pay a premium price.

- Retail stores like Gap Inc., J.C. Penney and Sears started offering affordable jeans, which attracted the younger population.

Levi’s is stuck in the middle between their new rivals. 2. Repositioning
Levi’s began to be perceived as no longer being stylish and having lost touch with what consumers wanted.

Levi’s failed to respond to trends in the 90s instead of focusing on innovative strength. 1. Failure to Meet Fast Fashion Trends After experiencing more than a century of positive sales trends and market growth, Levi’s began to lose market share in 1996. There were several reasons that set off the downward trend, including a lack of innovation, failure to anticipate consumer trends and an influx of fashion forward competitors willing to do what Levi’s either couldn’t or wouldn’t. Identify the problem 3. Strategic Issues - Pursues Transnational Strategy: popularity in foreign markets and increase profit margins.

Competitors Strategies 1. Introduction Introduction
Levi’s today
Strategic issues
Conclusion Table of contents Thank You - LS&Co had most of its early success because the firm was behaving monopolistically.

- Over the years, the company maintained profits by providing a wide range of products, capturing new markets, and increasing its market shares.

- However as more firms entered the market, the company started losing customers and incurring losses. The upstart companies captured niche market.

- Despite these reduction of sales, Levi Strauss & Co. maintained its corporate responsible image and progressive stance on social, labor, and environmental issues, which may have long-run profit opportunities but the company need to take into account seriously their strategic issue and resolve these problems. Conclusion 5. Conclusion 4. Recommendation Worldwide, there are approximately 750 franchised or other independently owned stores.

Stores are important vehicles for demonstrating the breath of product lines, enhancing brand image and generating sales. Entry Modes 2. Jeans industry and company analysis The innovation differentiated Levi’s jeans from others because of its increased durability.

more popular.
