"As we celebrate our company's 80th anniversary, I am delighted to mark this milestone with the strongest quarterly and year-to-date results in our company's history.

"Our robust direct-to-consumer performance, across both our brick & mortar and e-commerce channels, is a testament to brand strength and demonstrates that consumers are responding positively to our innovative product line. In wholesale, the positive momentum we experienced with our Spring 2018 assortment has continued with excellent early season sell-through of our Fall 2018 product line. With better than expected quarterly and record year-to-date results, we are pleased to increase our full year outlook," he added. (PC)
