Agency Neat Distribution is launching The Original Retro Brand (ORB) in the UK and Republic of Ireland, making a library of US licences available to indie retailers.
ORB’s wide range of licences is steeped in American culture, from sports to preppy college looks. The collection majors on men’s and women’s T-shirts that use the logos and mascot graphics of colleges and sports teams on a variety of background colourways with navy and grey marl the key shades. The wholesale price for T-shirts is £14.
The autumn 10 range, selling now, also includes sweats and jogging bottoms. ORB is based in LA and the product is manufactured in the US.
Neat Distribution is a partnership between ex-Pepe Jeans sales manager Terry Pearman and Nick Stavrakakis of agency Indigofera.
A handful of indies have already picked up the brand, including mini chain Aspecto and three-store business Michael Chell.
Neat Distribution is working in partnership with MGM Agencies.
