Differential Brands Group’s Robert Graham subsidiary has entered a licensing agreement with Peerless Clothing International to manufacture and distribute Robert Graham men’s and boys’ tailored clothing, suit separates and top coats.
The company said in a press release, “Peerless will begin distributing the products from spring 2019 throughout the United States and Mexico in department stores and luxury specialty stores, alongside Robert Graham consumer direct channels.”
The product will be made in Peerless’ Canadian factory with a half canvas make and sartorial hand-finished details utilizing the finest Italian pieces.
“We are thrilled to announce this new and very significant partnership which will strengthen the brand’s footprint and continue to create coveted luxury products,” said Andrew Berg, Robert Graham President in a statement.
The news follows several other recent licensing deals for the growing lifestyle brand, including loungewear, ophthalmic glasses and sunglasses, footwear, bedding and decorative pillows. Robert Graham already has deals for fragrances, headwear, leather goods, socks, and ties.
John Tighe, President of Peerless Clothing said, “The luxury brand DNA of Robert Graham translates to the tailored clothing category with sophistication, elegance, and creativity. As the largest producer of finely tailored clothing in North America, we are the experts in this category and look forward to adding a new dimension to our portfolio of brands.”
Robert Graham already produces a wide array of men’s products under license with various companies, including fragrances with Batallure Beauty, headwear with Henschel Hat Company, leather goods with RGA Leatherworks, and men’s dress shirts with Shirt Avenue.
In addition, the company has recently renewed two long-standing licensing relationships with Throat Threads, a Canadian leader in the fashion industry, and British Apparel Collection, a leader in the luxury hosiery marketplace.
