There are, to my way of thinking, three main points to be made about VF’s September 30 quarter. The first is that the Outdoor & Action Sports (OAS) segment revenues as reported rose 6.43%. Excluding a $32 million foreign exchange gain, the increase was 4.7%. Jeanswear was up 3.89% as reported and the other segments (Imagewear, Sportswear, Contemporary Brands, and Other) were basically flat for the quarter. Excluding foreign currency changes, OAS reported an operating loss of $1.7 million. There are good, even positive, reasons why, and I’ll discuss them below. But I still don’t like it.
