A new forecast from the investment banking firm Cowen and Company says Amazon will likely become the nation’s biggest clothing seller next year.

The online retailer is beating out big department-store chains like Macy’s. Consumers are increasingly opting for the convenience of online clothes shopping. The shift has grave implications for traditional apparel retailers.
