Tall Order, a New York-based men's sock company specialising in extended sizes, has signed licensing and shared services deals with United Legwear & Apparel Co (ULAC). The deals will help Tall Order deliver an improved product and grow a wider distribution network. Tall Order will focus on direct-to-consumer business and ULAC will work on wholesale sales.

Under the deals, ULAC will also manufacture products for Tall Order, using ULAC's seasoned design, production, and merchandising teams, factory base and logistics support. This will allow Tall Order to make the highest quality goods at a competitive price point.

Started by twin brothers Mike and Dan Friedman, who stand 6'11" and 6'9" respectively, Tall Order honours the memory of the Friedman's father Andrew, who was killed on September 11, 2001 in the World Trade Centre. To fulfil the "tall order" of giving back to those who assisted the Friedmans after 9/11, Tall Order makes fashionable, fun, comfortable socks for men in sizes from 9 to 20 as a nod to the socks the family provided to first responders during 9/11 recovery efforts. Tall Order also donates a portion of its profits to Tuesday's Children, a non-profit founded in the aftermath of 9/11 to assist communities facing traumatic loss.

"Partnering with ULAC was an easy decision," said Lisa Friedman Clark, president of Tall Order. "Who wouldn't want to work with the best in the business? Isaac Ash and his team have the expertise, experience, world-class products and infrastructure to facilitate the growth of Tall Order. This partnership means that more men of all sizes can look their best and feel good by giving back to people facing traumatic illnesses and loss."

Rachel Furer, senior vice president of Tall Order, added, "Having spent my entire career in accessories marketing and sales, I knew there was no better partner than United Legwear & Apparel Co. They make superior products, manufacture with integrity, and have the same mission to give back. Tall Order is proud to join the ULAC family and we look forward to growing our brand together."

It was an easy decision for ULAC as well, emotionally and financially, according to Isaac E Ash, founder, president and CEO of ULAC. "When I heard Tall Order's story and learned about the charitable component, I was immediately interested," he said. "Strategically, Tall Order fills white space in the market for extended sizes, offering excellent product in an important but underserved segment. They complement our portfolio of brands and I'm excited for this business to really take off."
