SEATTLE, Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Tommy Bahama, the popular lifestyle brand, has entered into an agreement with the National Football League (NFL) to create an officially licensed collection of premium lifestyle apparel. This prestigious collaboration will yield a distinctive series of highly focused Tommy Bahama lifestyle apparel custom designed solely for the NFL.
“Tommy Bahama is proud to be teaming up with the National Football League,” said Terry Pillow, CEO of Tommy Bahama. “The NFL has a long standing tradition of excellence and a commitment to football fans worldwide. We’re honored to join with the NFL in offering a new line of football-inspired lifestyle apparel that has been designed to connect football fans with their favorite teams and with our brand of relaxed sophisticated apparel.”
The multi-year agreement begins with the release of two custom designed styles for select NFL teams that will be available in late November. The first style is a half-zip pullover that features NFL team logos on the left sleeve and back collar and retails for $148. The second style is a full-zip team jacket with NFL team logos and trim on the inside neck and a large team logo on the back. Made of a luxurious, high tech Italian wool/nylon fabric, the jacket will retail for $295 and is heat insulating, lightweight, and incorporates stretch for comfort.
These special Tommy Bahama NFL team items will be available exclusively online at www.tommybahama.com and select Tommy Bahama retail locations. They will go on sale on November 21, 2013, just in time for holiday shopping.
“Tommy Bahama is a great addition to our roster of lifestyle apparel offerings,” said Leo Kane, the NFL’s SVP of Consumer Products. “We look forward to giving our fans another way to show their team pride at the game, the office, or relaxing at home.”
