Venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins has invested $30 million in direct-to-consumer apparel brand Untuckit.
The new round of funding — a Series A, with Kleiner as the sole investor — will help the company broaden its women’s line and expand into children’s apparel. The line, started in 2012, began with a men’s collection of shirts designed to be worn untucked. The company has since expanded its men’s assortment to include sweaters, polos, jackets, sweatshirts, performance-wear, T-shirts and henleys. According to the company web site, part of the design difference between shirts currently offered and those from the brand include a contoured hemline and the length ending at the middle of the pant zipper to partially expose the pockets. It began offering a women’s line this past spring.

And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
