Earnest Sewn co-founders Scott Morrison and Eleanor Ylvisaker exited the company on Tuesday. Morrison was creative director and Ylvisaker was public relations director, and the duo were the public faces of the denim maker they launched in 2004, along with Lori Jacobs, who left the company as head of sales in March of last year.
“In a very amiable way, there was a difference of opinion on the direction of the company,” said Michael Press, president of Earnest Sewn. “Scott and Eleanor did an outstanding job creating an iconic brand and an ideology within the company, but taking that concept and the brand to the next level is something the company’s been struggling with for a long time.”
