Freddie Stollmack, the cofounder and president of Weatherproof Garment Co., and a pervasive industry figure, will retire at the end of this month. He’ll remain as a consultant to the outerwear firm until the end of the year.
Calling Stollmack “a personal mentor and friend over the years,” Eliot Peyser, cofounder and chief executive officer of Weatherproof, said: “We salute Freddie on a stellar career and miss his creative intensity, attention to detail and friendship already. Freddie’s legacy will no doubt continue to help our company as it enters its third decade. Freddie is leaving at a time when the brand has never been bigger or stronger.”
