SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.–Paskowitz Apparel LLC introduces an “evolutionary” line of surfwear designed for young men that have a high appreciation for exceptional quality.
Jonathan Paskowitz, chief marketing officer, made the announcement Tuesday in San Clemente. “We have created a line that we feel will appeal to both the core surfer for its high performance characteristics and the fashion conscious that wants style without hype.”
The new product line is to be unveiled at the MAGIC show in Las Vegas and ASR in San Diego. The line consists of board shorts, pants, knit and woven shirts, T-shirts and walk shorts. Fabric is supplied by top quality mills including industry leader Hoffman California Fabrics. The entire line is manufactured in the United States and will be widely available by the end of the year.
“The product will be carried by selected surf shops and retailers nationally. Beginning next year Paskowitz brand sportswear will also be available in targeted international markets,” said Paskowitz.
The Paskowitz brand is not exactly new to the industry. It was developed soon after a failed co-branding effort with Tommy Hilfiger last year. Jeff Antoci, CFO, organized and recruited the Paskowitz team consisting of brothers Jonathan, Abraham and Izzy Paskowitz.
“I met these guys and saw the potential and energy they had. They weren’t mad at Tommy but were frustrated that some of their concepts for sportswear had not materialized. We hit the ground running and now are executing some totally advanced thinking,” said Antoci. He added, “We only test against the category leaders and conduct audience surveys year round.”
Paskowitz Apparel LLC was founded in January 2000. The company manufactures and distributes a variety of high quality sportswear for young men that is demonstrably superior from both a fashion and function perspective. Paskowitz also operates the Paskowitz Family surf camp and are founders of Surfers Healing, a foundation that funds research and awareness for autism.
A new book, “Surfing & Health” written by Dr. Dorian Paskowitz, the family patriarch, is to be released next month.
