PVH has tapped TS Commerce to manufacture, sell, distribute and promote apparel and accessories for the Van Heusen brand in Korea.
Under the new agreement, which extends through 2018, TS Commerce will manufacture a range of Van Heusen products include men’s dress and sport shirts, neckwear, knit shirts, suits and suit separates, pants, underwear, leather belts, wallets, cuff links, tie bars, socks, headwear, bags and shoes.
TS Commerce will also open and operate free-standing Van Heusen stores in the country as well as distribute Van Heusen products through shop-in-shops, specialty stores, department stores, retail outlets and via an e-commerce website.
“We are thrilled to expand the Van Heusen brand into Korea, as we believe that our classic American heritage will resonate well with the Korean consumer,” says Ken Wyse, president of licensing, PVH. “We believe that TS Commerce will be an excellent partner for us, given their extensive experience in the dress apparel industry, understanding of the Korean marketplace and strong relationships across the largest department stores in the region.”
