Weatherproof and United Legwear Company, LLC, announced a new licensing agreement to produce legwear and accessories in the United States.

The legwear line, set to roll out for Fall/Holiday 2013, will be an extensive, premium legwear line for men, women, and children that include many silhouettes and fabrications, from wool blend crews to performance/lifestyle socks. Weatherproof legwear will be sold in better department stores such as Macy's, Dillard's, Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, Belk, Von Maur, and more.

Additional licensed marks for the legwear line include Weatherproof, Weatherproof Vintage and 32 Degrees Weatherproof.

"Legwear is a natural extension of Weatherproof's existing product lines," said Eliot Peyser, Chief Executive Officer of Weatherproof.  Given United Legwear's excellent reputation for top quality products and their power of distribution, partnering with ULC was an easy decision," Peyser added. "We expect a great response at retail."

Isaac E. Ash , President and CEO of United Legwear Co., explained the appeal of the Weatherproof brand to his product portfolio: "Weatherproof is an iconic brand that fits a profile we've been looking for: a strong brand that allows us to incorporate many technical properties and performance elements available now," he said. 

"Plus, there's a void in the market for high-quality, everyday socks that provide comfort, wick away moisture and offer temperature control. Our Weatherproof products will bring the kind of legwear that's normally found in high-end specialty stores to a wider distribution," Ash added.
