CHICAGO -- Fruit of the Loom has licensed its name for its first line of bodywear. It will be produced by J.J.'s Mae Inc./Rainbeau, San Francisco.
Bodywear styles of cotton and Lycra spandex will include bike shorts, pants, leggings, crop tops and leotards. The licensed line will be distributed through mass-market chains, an FTL spokesman said. First deliveries are scheduled in late 1994.
FTL, best known for its underwear and basic casualwear for men and women, has had success with a licensed line of bras and panties manufactured by The Warnaco Group, the spokesman noted, and this prompted FTL to look for other licensing channels.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
