NEW YORK — With old-school appeal showing no signs of letting up with teenagers and Baby Boomers, four familiar brands are trying to make a comeback in the U.S.
Three of those labels — Fred Perry, Hummel and Kappa — hail from overseas and first dug into the athletic market decades ago. The fourth, Le Tigre, started up in the Seventies as a more affordable alternative to Lacoste polo shirts. Each brand had a few golden moments, but saw their veneer become dull after American sneaker giants stormed the market in the Eighties.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
