Upscale fashion retailer Oroton International on Tuesday posted a record net profit of A$6.4 million on the back of a 22 per cent jump in sales to A$87.4m but warned current sales were slow.

The operator of 54 stores, including 18 Polo Ralph Lauren outlets and eight Morrissey shops, said that result included $A9.5m in extra sales from 13 new stores added during the fiscal year.

It added its new own brand lingerie and men's underwear products were ahead of its expectations.

"Whilst our aim this year is for double-digit growth, the start has been tough and sales are below expectations," Oroton said.

"The Oroton group is taking a disciplined approach and is prepared to take measures to ensure continued improvement to the bottom line."

It continued: "Management is pleased with the current progress of the Morrissey brand and expects further improvements to put the division above the break-even point in the current year."
