Duck Head & it famous khakis to return to retail market this fall
Apr '11
Once a staple for every fraternity brother in the South, Duck Head is returning to its roots in Nashville, TN, where it was established in 1865. Duck Head plans to offer products for delivery as soon as the 2011 back-to-school season and will release new products over the next six months.

Nashville Apparel Company DBA Duck Head Apparel will manufacture and distribute the affordable, quality apparel to specialty and chain retail stores. In recent years the Duck Head brand generated retail sales in excess of $200mm. Nashville Apparel Company looks forward to building Duck Head by reintroducing this historic lifestyle brand into the market.

Bill Reese, President of Duck Head Apparel Company, started his career over 22 years ago working for the Nashville-based O'Bryan Brothers, which originally created the Duck Head brand. Bill has played an integral part in bringing the Duck Head brand “home” to Nashville.

“The Duck Head brand is about more than just a pair of khakis. It represents a way of life that revolves around taking pride in how you look, spending time with family and friends, and enjoying life,” says Reese. “We want Duck Head Apparel back on retailers' shelves, so consumers throughout the country can be part of Duck Head and experience the brand again.”

The world has certainly seen its share of change since 1865, when the O'Bryan Brothers founded the Duck Head brand in Nashville, TN. From our home base in Nashville, we're still delivering dependable, classic apparel and accessories to those who take pride in who they are, where they live and what they wear. We believe in our legacy and always will. “They are not khakis, they're Duck Heads, and the tradition continues.”
