Footwear, leather apparel and accessories maker Bruno Magli has registered a 63 per cent year-on-year jump in sales of men's items on the United States market for the latest fiscal half.

The company, a unit of Italian investment fund Opera, also posted a 25 per cent year-on-year increase in US sales of women's items over the six-month period.

Bruno Magli attributed the upturn to its current reorganisation plan, which has seen the company reduce costs and close a raft of non-strategic stores.
