There aren't many brands in the urban space that can boast a 20-year history and $1 billion in annual retail sales. But that's just what Southpole has built by maintaining a laser-focus on its target customers and seamlessly evolving with them over the past two decades.
As a result, the brand has become a pervasive presence around the U.S., counting over 5,000 department and specialty stores as customers, including more than 1,000 J.C. Penney units, 480 Stage Stores, 300 Peebles and 70 Gordmans as well as countless independents.
