Keeps me in the loop
Keeps me in the loop

Being an Executive Edition member allows me to not miss a beat when it comes to the Industry business news. Definitely keeps me in the loop plus goes great with my morning joe.

It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Zippo extends brand with new line of men's apparel

April 20, 2011 11:20 PM

Press Release:


Los Angeles, CA (April 20, 2011)- Zippo proudly announces that the company's new line of apparel for men is now available in the United States and Puerto Rico. Licensed under Joint Base USA, the collection of apparel is currently available at retailers, including Urban Outfitters. Zippo Apparel debuted the line of apparel during the February 2011 Magic Trade Show in Las Vegas, the preeminent trade event in the international fashion industry.  


The line of apparel, which will include tee shirts, hats, belts, denim, twill pants, shorts and jackets, fleece and woven shirts, will feature artwork and photography dating back to 1932, when the iconic Zippo lighter was invented.


At the helm of Zippo Apparel are industry veterans Ingrid Martin, Mary Bang, and Todd Proffit. Zippo Apparel, with leverage in its extensive designing, is selling and marketing this lifestyle apparel to the fashion forward, action sports-based consumer.


With a balance of a grass roots and main stream marketing approach, Zippo Apparel will penetrate the Generation Y group of individuals ages 18-34 who are trend-setting hipsters.  Zippo Apparel's demographic will also reach a much older group than the target market by staying true to the history of the Zippo Brand, using old archives to tell the story of this one-of-a-kind brand.


With the exclusive global duty free distribution rights for Zippo Apparel, Joint Base USA will be leading the efforts to raise awareness and drive visibility for the new apparel collection in the United States and abroad.


"The response has been just mind blowing.  Everyone has a Zippo story to share and can relate to the collection of apparel instantly," said Todd Proffit, Marketing Director for Zippo Apparel.
