NEW YORK--Plaid Clothing Group has signed a licensing agreement with Liz Claiborne Inc. to manufacture and market a line of men's tailored clothing.
The new collection, to be called Claiborne Clothing, will be launched for fall 1995 and include men's suits, sport coats, trousers and overcoats. Suits will retail from $300 to $400 and sport coats, from $200 to $300.
Claiborne, which produces its own men's sportswear and furnishings under the Claiborne label, will continue to sell its own soft jackets and slacks as a part of collection departments. Jay Friedman, president of Claiborne's men's division, said the Plaid line will put "the Claiborne [men's] label in front of a wider audience of customers who may not now be shopping the collections department."
He added, "We will work very closely with Plaid on development of the line and coordinate the clothing with our sportswear and furnishings."
