US: Nautica in sock licensing deal with Delta Galil
The first collection is scheduled to launch for spring 2014 and will be available at Nautica retail stores, specialty, and better department stores. Prices will be US$16- $20.
"We look forward to leveraging our strength in design, product development, and innovation to continue to grow this modern American classic," said Delta Galil CEO Isaac Dabah.
Delta Galil last week raised its full-year guidance on the back of continued top-line growth, despite seeing its second-quarter profit more than halve due to higher costs of expanding its business.
