Infinity Headwear and Apparel, Inc. announced a partnership with The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), an IMG Company, to launch an exclusive MascotWear collection focused on collegiate mascot-inspired apparel.

The new line features an array of products that allow children the opportunity to dress up as his or her favorite college mascot. Initial products in the line will include infant and youth full-bodied Halloween costumes, hooded fashion tops, towels, bathrobes, sleepwear, and rainwear.

“We are thrilled to have obtained the exclusive license for a new category of apparel and accessories with The Collegiate Licensing Company,” said Doug Keller, President and Founder, Infinity Headwear and Apparel, Inc. “MascotWear is an apparel and accessories line dedicated to representing the on-field mascot for both kids and adults. We look forward to driving sales with this new category and increasing Infinity's market share with iconic brands paired with innovative apparel and accessories at the retail level,” he continued.

"We have long believed college mascots would have great applications as costumes, but finding the right partner to execute such a program proved challenging,” said Scott Bouyack, Vice President of Apparel Marketing, The Collegiate Licensing Company. “We're very excited to launch this new relationship with Infinity Headwear & Apparel, and have great confidence in their ability to make this a successful new category of business for our collegiate clients and their loyal fans."
