United Legwear & Apparel Co. (ULAC) has acquired TicTacToe, a brand of infant, toddler, and children's legwear, accessories, and apparel.

ULAC says the acquisition will allow it to offer a wholly-owned brand to retailers who want to give their customers top-quality children's apparel and accessories at a good value.

In the three decades that TicTacToe has served the children's market, it's been a go-to brand for infant socks, booties, grip-bottom socks, knee-socks, tights, school uniform legwear, and athletic legwear.

In addition, ULAC is developing a global licensing programme across all categories in the kids' market, from layette, infant, and toddler sets to baby blankets, underwear, and toys.

In recent years, the firm has also designed and manufactured two and three-piece toddler apparel sets and has plans to continue this programme under a licensed model.

ULAC is a 22-year-old New York City-based global entity that designs, manufactures, markets, and distributes legwear, bodywear, apparel, and accessories to some of the world's leading retailers. 

It has a joint venture partnership with Puma North America, is a licensee of brands such as Hurley, Skechers, Champion, Fortnite, and Weatherproof, owns the Pro Player brand, and is a manufacturer of several private-label brands.
