'Our people make the difference,' said Baumann
Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
The Just U.S. fabric collection is targeted to better men’s trousers, suits, suit separates, blazers, and sports coats and can be used for made-to-measure, custom tailors and branded and better department stores and specialty shop brands.
“Burlington’s new collection of fine worsted fabrics opens up exciting opportunities for Made in America better apparel,” said Peter Baumann, Senior Vice President Merchandising for Burlington Menswear. “Fine worsted fabrics are a pillar to creating contemporary classic styling, but more recently these fabrics have not been produced in the United States. With our new Just U.S. worsteds, made in Cordova and Raeford, North Carolina, designers and brands can now re-connect the heritage of classic men’s dress with modern constructions and color ways for performance and year-round comfort.”
Burlington’s worsted heritage dates back to 1954 and centers on the wool expertise of the Burlington Raeford® brand, named after the plant where it is produced. Raeford worsteds are known throughout the U.S. military and better menswear brands worldwide for its quality and superior color match capabilities. Raeford has been the primary supplier of worsted wool and wool blend fabrics for all branches of the U.S. military for more than 50 years.
“Our people make the difference,” said Baumann. “Producing fine worsteds is both a science and an art. Science can be duplicated but the expertise of our employees and their years of worsted experience is unparalleled. The Just U.S. fabric collection creates a new Americana bringing together our Raeford heritage and expertise with contemporary designs - all made in the U.S.”
The Just U.S. fabric collection is launching for Fall 2015. Samples are available for immediate viewing. Contact one of Burlington’s sales offices in New York, Greensboro, Dallas, and San Francisco. For more details contact us at http://www.burlington.com/just-us/.
