Hickey Freeman Outlet: A Classic to Tailored Suits

Since the early years of the 20th Century up until today, Hickey Freeman is considered as one of the most prominent brands of tailored suits for men. It was founded in 1899 by two young
entrepreneurs Jeremiah (“Jerry”) Hickey and his close friend, Jacob L. Freeman in Rochester, New York. Thus, the Hickey-Freeman Co. is named after them.

The Temple

The Temple to Fine Tailoring- is what everyone calls the Hickey Freeman outlets back then. Rightfully, the two entrepreneurs goal was to bring high-quality hand-tailoring to men from all across America. For them, a Hickey Freeman suit should encompass this vision and should be a testament to both the delicate artistry of hand-craftsmanship and the steady consistency of modern technology. This plan was considered as an epic American story of success. Prominent and famous personalities, for generation to generation, have turned to Hickey Freeman for authenticity and quality, elegance and innovation.

As the company amassed greater success, in 1902, it was able to take over business and larger premises of companies such as Michael Kolb, & Co., and merger with Beckel, Baum & Leopold Co. By 1912, the company was able to build a large and more modern factory on N. Clinton Ave. on the city’s northern outskirts, considering that the majority of the employees live near the area.

Until today, the motto of Hickey Freeman is “Keep the Quality Up” still holds true and you can find the proof of this in all the suits you can find in Hickey Freeman outlet stores.

You may find out more of the history and the latest information about the company as well as its latest products at the Hickey Freeman online outlet.

K-Swiss Outlet: The Breakthrough of Leather Tennis Shoes

Nowadays, you can find a lot of companies offering athletic footwear. These shoes have been specially designed for the type of activity or sport. These types of shoes and more you can certainly found at any K-Swiss outlets all across the U.S.

The Brothers that Made the Mark

In 1966, K-Swiss was founded in Los Angeles, California by the two Swiss brothers Art and Ernie Brunner. After they immigrated to America, the two became fascinated in tennis. This fascination leads them to craft and honed the first leather tennis shoes.

A Successful Buyout

Around 1986, while still working at Stride Ride, Steven Nichols was so impressed with the K-Swiss tennis shoes that he tried to convince his bosses to buyout the K-Swiss company. When his superiors dismissed his proposition, he went out to a group of investors that eventually bought the company for $20 million. Nichols then called the K-Swiss white stripes on white leather tennis shoe a “classic 50-year shoe”. Later on, the company had a global sales amounting over $500 million in 2005. Since then, it had grown internationally and passed $100 million in revenue by 2006 in Europe. This continuing success made them acquire the Royal Elastics shoe firm in 2001. However, by 2009, they sold it back to a management-led investment group.

This great success won’t be possible if it wasn’t for the good management of Nichol’s, who boosted the company’s marketing budget and hired many key individual from large companies, such as Procter and Gamble, and began a marketing spree around the K-Swiss brand during the 90s. Nowadays, K-Swiss outlet stores is basically one of the most popular shoe outlets that people go to when shopping for athletic footwear.
