The collection will be sold by Harry Bachrach's line of independent sales representatives and targeted to specialty stores around the country.
“Harry Bachrach is honored to be working with such a great brand as Southern Tide,” said Michael Mone, ceo of Harry Bachrach. “We take a lot of pride in our work and when a brand like Southern Tide taps our company to be its manufacturing partner, we take our role very seriously. Harry Bachrach sources the finest fabrics globally and designs some of the most compelling neckwear in the marketplace. We cannot wait to bring the same international-quality to the Southern Tide customer.”
The collection will retail for $55 to $85 and will also be sold at Southern Tide's signature stores.
