Men’s wear start-up Mizzen + Main has raised $3 million in Series B funding, which brings the company’s total investment to $4.25 million.
The round was led by Ben Nash, chief executive officer of PCS Wireless; Thomas Morstead of the New Orleans Saints; George Couri and Bruce Kalmick of Triple 8 Management and the Vegas Tech Fund, and Brian Tochman of MRCA Investment.
According to Kevin Lavelle, Mizzen + Main’s cofounder and ceo, this investment will help him expand the brand’s assortment, which currently includes performance dress shirts, polos, chinos, T-shirts, Henleys and knits.
“These funds will allow us to continue our rapid growth trajectory toward becoming the next great American brand,” Lavelle said. “Mizzen + Main has changed the way men approach their wardrobe bringing simplicity, performance and style to everyday essentials. We look forward to bringing additional collections into the fold, and further revolutionizing classic clothing to meet the demands of the modern age.”
The Dallas-based brand has gained a following among athletes for its wrinkle-free, moisture wicking pieces. Last year Mizzen + Main, which was founded in 2012, named NFL player J.J. Watt as the face of the brand.
