Frank Sinatra Headwear Available This Fall
Sinatra™ Headwear to Launch this Fall from Dorfman Pacific
STOCKTON, CA./NEW YORK, NY - Leading headwear company Dorfman Pacific announces the completion of an arrangement with Frank Sinatra Enterprises (FSE) under which Dorfman Pacific will market an exciting new collection of structured headwear. The Sinatra™ collection will launch with various fedora styles that are representational and inspired by Mr. Sinatra’s wardrobe. All will feature traditional haberdashery with details such as silk linings, grosgrain ribbon trim, classic hat pins, and each one will include touches of his favorite color orange on its interior as a tribute to him.
Seldom, if ever, has a man been more closely linked to hats and style than Frank Sinatra—“The Chairman of the Board”— to the fedora. Always perfectly dressed for the occasion, always the epitome of elegance, Ol’ Blue Eyes was rarely without a perfectly selected hat. Now, with the Dorfman Pacific relationship, the classic style of Sinatra will be available. Dorfman Pacific will debut the collection at MAGIC in August this year, and will showcase the line in its major showrooms across the country. It will reach consumers in better department stores and specialty retailers for the Fall/Winter 2010 season.
“Frank Sinatra was every bit as much of a perfectionist in his dress as he was on stage and screen,” said Dorfman Pacific‘s President and CEO, Douglas Highsmith. “He was and remains today almost as famous for his superlative tailoring and style as for his artistry—and hats were absolutely central to his look. This is an exciting moment for us. Frank Sinatra remains one of the most recognizable legends of film and music in America or anywhere else. With our world-leading skills in handcrafted, quality headwear, Dorfman Pacific will flawlessly design a collection that depicts Mr. Sinatra's look and is right for today’s buyer. We are looking forward to launching a truly authentic tribute to his legacy.”
In addition to the Frank Sinatra brand, in the last year Dorfman Pacific has added Stetson®, Tommy Bahama®, Woolrich®, Panama Jack®, Blue Chair Bay™ by Kenny Chesney, Cappelli Straworld™, Discovery Expedition™, John Deere and Mossy Oak® to its line up. These top names have taken their place alongside the company’s core brands including Scala™, Scala Pro™, Callanan, Christys’ London, Headers, Tropical Trends and DPC™, Stacy Adams®, and Indiana Jones. Its Milano division features Larry Mahan and Justin Authentic Headgear.
