US: Lord and Taylor launches Joseph Abboud line
The line, available in 44 doors and online, will be advertised in September and featured in Lord and Taylor's fashion catalogues for men.
Jane Elfers, president and CEO of Lord and Taylor, said: "Black and brown are representative of great men's colours: street smart and country wise. And 1826 is the date in which Lord and Taylor was founded."
The line consists of its labelled collection and sportswear, as well as dress furnishings and tailored clothing. Items include sweaters, sportshirts, knitwear, pants, outerwear, jeans, dress shirts, neckwear, belts, pajamas, hosiery, suits, sportcoats, blazers, trousers and topcoats.
In addition, Lord and Taylor's top nine doors will also offer Black Brown 1826's LUX range, which the company said is constructed of luxurious yarns.
Lord and Taylor will display the Black Brown 1826 collection in its Fifth Avenue Windows from 29 August to 22 September.
