Total inventories grew by $55 million or 23%, on a year-over-year basis, driven primarily by the acquisition of inventory to stock new retail stores.For the three months ended October 31, 2010, selling, general and administrative expenses, expressed as a percentage of net sales, increased by 27 basis points. This increase was primarily due to higher fulfillment costs related to the increased penetration of international direct-to-consumer sales, investments in systems and international infrastructure. For the nine months ended October 31, 2010, selling, general and administration expenses, expressed as a percentage of net sales, decreased by 21 basis points versus the prior comparable period. This decrease was primarily due to leveraging of direct store fixed and controllable costs helped by the positive comparable retail segment sales during the nine months ended October 31, 2010.
