Broder Bros. Co. Announces Largest Apparel Product Launch in the Industry, Showcased at Selling What Sells Live Tour

"The customer turnout and feedback on this tour was unbelievable," said Chris Blakeslee, senior vice president of sales for Broder Bros. "Our 2013 product launch is the largest in our history, so the timing was perfect and customers were very excited about going out to show the new items. Selling What Sells Live on Tour is really becoming the place for customers to hone their selling skills while also getting a jump on next year."
Broder's new product assortment includes three well-known, highly regarded retail brands: Russell Athletic, New Balance and FUL Bags. Russell, the leading provider of team uniforms at the high school and college level, will offer basic and performance inspired T-shirts, fleece, shorts, polos and warm-ups.

FUL Bags, the leader in technical performance bag systems with a fashion edge, will be offered in 21 styles of backpacks, duffels and messenger bags.
In addition, Broder has expanded to full-line offerings from fashion fitness brand Alo and environmental champion econscious for the coming year. They also have made substantial additions to their outerwear offering in two of their best-selling private label lines, Devon & Jones and Harriton.
