The Outdoor Recreation Group and its Fieldline outdoor sports and hunting brand, are to create a line of casual rugged wear and accessories bearing the Winchester name.

Winchester, one of America's most respected brands of ammunition, says the multi-year agreement will include items such as cargo pants, fleece-lined blue jeans and denim jackets, duck vests, button-down shirts, barn coats, corduroy jackets and vests and shirt jackets.

The range will make its debut in autumn 2002, and future apparel lines will be extended to include hunting apparel.
