An Expanded Range of Sketchers Styles Feature Goodyear Rubber Technology Outsoles For Enhanced Grip, Stability And Durability
Global footwear powerhouse Skechers is building on the technology in its footwear through a new collaboration with The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. Select styles across multiple categories for men, women and kids will utilize Goodyear rubber technology in custom Skechers outsoles that will deliver increased grip, stability and durability.
“This collaboration is an example of two trusted brands coming together to create a high-tech product that will truly benefit our consumer,” said Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “Through this effort, select products will feature Goodyear Performance Outsoles, offering that extra edge where it’s needed most—be it enhanced stability on a run, excellent grip over slippery surfaces in the workplace, or durability on the playground for long-lasting wear. We expect this will resonate with our customers who need these innovations in the comfortable Skechers footwear that they love.”
“Goodyear has always worked to create innovative products that provide consumers with high-performance tires, and now we’re using that same ingenuity to enable consumers to wear high-performance shoes,” said Christian Jurado, Goodyear’s global director of licensed products.
The shoes, featuring Goodyear Performance Outsoles, are designed for durability with long-lasting wear, excellent grip on a variety of surfaces and weather conditions and enhanced stability through exceptional traction. This is made possible with Goodyear-developed rubber technology that contains a special polymer including sustainable soybean oil—a renewable, bio-based material used in some of the company’s top-performing tires – available in the U.S. and Canada – the Assurance® WeatherReady®, Eagle® Exhilarate® and Eagle® Enforcer® All Weather® and the Assurance ComfortDrive®.

Ushers In Seasonal Marketing Campaign With A Fresh Cast Including
Musician H.E.R. And Entrepreneur Luka Sabbat
iconic lifestyle brand continues to celebrate its uniqueness and
elevated position by featuring personalities who highlight the
diversity and spirit of UGG®.
Global lifestyle brand UGG® unveiled their sixth UGG® Collective global campaign for Autumn/Winter 2019, featuring a cast of real Californians including GRAMMY® Award-winning musician Gabi Wilson of H.E.R., plus entrepreneur and style influencer Luka Sabbat.
majestic mountains and wild woodlands to buzzing cities and quiet
beach towns, California represents an eclectic paradise that brings
together people from all across the world. For the brand’s new
campaign, UGG® and the cast traveled across San Francisco finding
breathtaking locations in the Presidio and historic Battery
“The UGG Collective consists of Californian musicians, actors, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, photographers and professional athletes. Like UGG®, they are bold, provocative, free-spirited, optimistic and real,” said Andrea O’Donnell, President, Fashion & Lifestyle Brands. “Each season, we select new groups of unique individuals to represent the brand. In telling their stories, we tell ours.”
season the cast includes:
Gabi Wilson/H.E.R. dives into enigma to get listeners to focus on her sound rather than the person behind it. Writing and practicing music since the age of three, the California native’s soulful songs have garnered praise from the likes of Alicia Keys, Bryson Tiller, and Rihanna. Touted as one of R&B’s rising stars, she won her first GRAMMY Award in February 2019 and is part of a growing group of young creatives who are revising identity and art in the digital age.
Luka Sabbat does everything his own way. Growing up between New York and Paris with fashion-industry parents, he has an innate sense of style infused into everything he does—most notably, his self-made project “Hot Mess,” a collaborative collection of unapologetically raw photography, film, clothing, and furniture. Boldly unfiltered, he redefines what it means to be a young creative entrepreneur.
Crystal Moselle is intent on bringing more female perspectives to film, turning her lens on an all-girl cast in Skate Kitchen, which follows a group of unapologetically young, queer, and feminist skateboarders in NYC. Honest in her storytelling, Moselle’s tender curiosity allows her to create soft yet extraordinary moments on screen—uncovering beauty in pain, and truth in fiction.
Daniel Woods never cowers in the face of failure, embracing it as a ladder to greatness. Competitively climbing since age eight, he is currently at the top of his game, winning a gold medal at the IFSC World Cup in 2010 and dominating the American Boulder Series for the last decade. Passionate and daring, he pushes the limits of possibility on a daily basis.
Lola McDonnell is a free-spirited model whose wild heart and love for travel lead her to some of the world’s most beautiful places. Often accompanied by fiancé and fellow Collective member Zackery Michael, she leads an unconventional life of adventure.
Zackery Michael lives life on his own terms as a self-taught photographer who’s always on the road. From shooting fashion editorials in NYC and celebrities in L.A. to documenting the mountain tribes of Myanmar, his photography focuses on intimate shots of people and places, often featuring his girlfriend Lola McDonnell.

This comes to life in the Tommy Bahama & Pendleton collection of men’s and women’s apparel, accessories, and home products.

Tommy Bahama Logo
Combining their boundless dedication to open-air living, Tommy Bahama & Pendleton features the signature level of comfort, style, and quality that Tommy Bahama and Pendleton guests have come to expect. The brands’ shared sensibilities and authentic values are exemplified in two, new collaborative fabric patterns: the Aloha Harding Print unites Pendleton’s Harding design with overlaid tropical florals and the Island Serape Stripe features a tropical leaf pattern jacquard with Pendleton’s classic blanket stripe. These fabric patterns are used in a men’s vest, cardigan, camp shirt, and swim trunk and in a women’s serape poncho, dress, blouse, swim and activewear along with blankets, coffee mugs and more. Adding to the special nature of the Tommy Bahama & Pendleton collaboration, fabrics and blankets are made exclusively in Pendleton’s own Pacific Northwest mills for this collection.

This year also marks the 25th anniversary of Tommy Bahama, the iconic island lifestyle brand that defines relaxed, sophisticated style in men’s and women’s sportswear, swimwear, accessories, footwear, and a complete home furnishing collection.

Warm, stylish, relaxed and approachable are the essential elements, which dovetail our two brands. It is a true celebration of the simple pleasures of living the good life on the beach, in the mountains or in your own backyard.”

Company was Founded by Henry Sands Brooks, Two Hundred Years Ago April 7, 1818
On April 7, 2018, Brooks Brothers, America’s oldest retailer, reached its milestone 200-year anniversary. Since opening its doors on April 7, 1818, in New York City, Brooks Brothers has grown from a small family haberdasher to become a global brand that has shaped and defined American style through its product innovations.
Brooks Brothers logo
“Our anniversary today marks a significant and historic milestone not only for Brooks Brothers but also for the retail industry,” said Claudio Del Vecchio, Chairman, and CEO of Brooks Brothers. “This is a moment to celebrate two hundred years steeped in both tradition and innovation.“
American fashion today is a result of years of groundbreaking innovations and revolutionary disruptions by Brooks Brothers. While perhaps best known today as a “classic” brand, it is important to note that the brand’s founder, Henry Sands Brooks (1772 – 1833), was no traditionalist at all. He was actually a dandy and an influencer among his peers, always on the lookout for the newest and most novel styles for his emporium in lower Manhattan selling “every new style of cloth, of the finest quality, made to order in the best and most fashionable mode.”
Brooks Brothers 346 Madison Avenue Flagship Store NYC Entrance
It is therefore ironic that some of Brooks Brothers’ most classic items today were the result of either invention and innovation — many radical for their time. In fact, Brooks Brothers is notably responsible for the introduction and popularization of some of fashion’s most iconic and enduring items, including the navy blazer, the reverse striped rep tie, the polo coat and the Number One Sack Suit. Even today’s athleisure trend has its origins in Brooks Brothers’ adaptations of sports clothes for daily life — most notably the 1900 invention of the Original Polo® Button-Down Oxford shirt. Finally, Brooks Brothers was responsible for the single most significant contribution to fashion — ready-to-wear tailored clothing, which was introduced to America in the mid-1800s as a consequence of the Gold Rush.

This sartorial passion was passed down from Henry to his sons, Elisha, Daniel, Edward, and John: the actual Brooks Brothers. These were fashion’s earliest influencers. For the past two centuries — and straight through to today — Brooks Brothers has outfitted an ever-changing world and is consistently pursuing quality and innovation, always with a respect for the past and an eye toward the future.
A Selection of Brooks Brothers Milestones:
Before there was the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, the Statue of Liberty, Grand Central Terminal, and the cities of Hollywood and Chicago, there was Brooks Brothers.
In 1818, Henry Sands Brooks opened clothing shop “H. & D. H. Brooks & Co” on the corner of Catherine and Cherry Streets. The first recorded transaction was actually a loan to a friend.
In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln wore a custom-made Brooks Brothers coat to his second inauguration. Sadly, he was also wearing it when he was assassinated a month later.
Brooks Brothers Original Polo Button Down Oxford
In 1900, Brooks Brothers invented the original button-down-collar shirt after noticing that polo players in England were pinning down their collars while playing.
In 1902, Brooks Brothers introduced the reverse-stripe rep tie, an adaptation of British regimental ties.
In 1915, Brooks Brothers opened its 346 Madison Avenue flagship store, where it remains today.
In 1953, Brooks Brothers invented the first ever non-iron shirt.
In 1957, Brooks Brothers introduced Argyle socks to America.
In 1961, Brooks Brothers designed the “#2 suit” — a favorite of longtime customer President John F. Kennedy.
In 1976, Brooks Brothers launched a full women’s collection.
In 1979, Brooks Brothers was one of the first international brands to expand to Japan.
In 2008, Brooks Brothers acquired Southwick in Massachusetts so that it could resume the manufacturing of tailored clothing in America.
In 2016, Brooks Brothers appointed Zac Posen as creative director for the Women’s Collection.
Throughout its history, Brooks Brothers have forged relationships with generations of customers: artists and politicians, working people and captains of industry, and Hollywood legends, as well as 40 out of 45 U.S. Presidents.
Today, Brooks Brothers currently have more than 280 stores in the United States and more than 700 locations internationally in 45 countries and continue to lead with a pioneering spirit, continually developing materials and designs that deliver performance, innovation and high-quality design.

Annual Retail Study Also Uncovers Top Shoe Brands, And Trends In Consumer Confidence, Wearables And E-Commerce
Nordstrom’s fan base is as fervent as ever. For the fifth time in a row, Nordstrom ranked as the nation’s favorite fashion retailer in an annual retail industry study conducted byMarket Force Information (Market Force). Market Force polled over 10,000 consumers for the study, which ranks top fashion retailers, reveals retail technology trends and looks at spending plans and habits.
Market Force Information (Market Force) logo
The survey was conducted online in December 2016 across the United States. There was an overall pool of 10,714 respondents covering all four U.S. Census regions. Within the survey pool, 7,241 reported shopping for fashion at a favorite retailer within the past 90 days, and 5,494 reported shopping for shoes within the past six months. There was a broad spectrum of income levels, with 54% indicating incomes of over $50,000 a year. Respondents’ ages ranged from 18 to over 65. Approximately 75% were women and 25% were men. For the rankings, Market Force asked participants to rate their customer satisfaction with their most recent fashion retailer experience, and their likelihood to refer the brand to others. The results were averaged to attain a Composite Loyalty Score. Only retailers with at least 100 locations were included.
Dillard’s and T.J. Maxx Climb Higher in Rankings
Nordstrom, which has built a reputation for incomparable customer service, ranked first among the retailers studied with a score of 64%, up 6% from 2016. Dillard’s made even larger strides from last year, gaining 16% percentage points to rank second with 54%, and was closely trailed by off-price retailer T.J. Maxx, which earned a 53% score. Ann Taylor and Nordstrom Rack landed in the top of the rankings, after not making the cut last year, tying with Kohl’s for fourth place. [See Graph 1].

Nordstrom Top for Value, Dillard’s for Creating Full Looks
In the attributes that set one retailer apart from the others, Nordstrom, Ann Taylor and Dillard’s all performed exceedingly well. Overall-winner Nordstrom ranked first for value, atmosphere, and ease of finding items, while Dillard’s took the No. 1 spots for creating a look and finding correct sizes. Ann Taylor landed in the top three in all of these categories. T.J. Maxx and Ross were called out for merchandise selection, and American Eagle has the fastest checkout speeds. [See Graphs 2 and 3].

Sizing up Sales Support
Despite the fact that sales assistance is shown to boost satisfaction and sales, less than half (42%) of consumers report being helped by an associate during their last shopping trip. Lane Bryant’s and Nordstrom’s associates assisted customers most often, while Target and T.J. Maxx shoppers received the least help. [See Graph 4].
“Sales associates are the front-line representatives for retailers, and how they engage with customers can make or break the shopping experience and impact sales,” said Cheryl Flink, chief strategy officer for Market Force Information. “The research shows that 90% of customers who were assisted by a sales associate bought something. When customers were not assisted, only 82% made a purchase. That 8% difference in conversion rate is a key reason why fashion retailers need to invest in their sales staff.”Continue reading →
