Tommy Bahama Brings Shoes In-House

Tommy Bahama has launched a new footwear division.
 
The company had previously licensed out the category to Phoenix Footwear
Group, though Tommy Bahama terminated that agreement last March.
 
The company will now bring footwear sales, marketing and distribution
in-house, while Jimlar Corp. will oversee the development and manufacturing
of the collection, and collaborate with the Tommy Bahama design teams. The
line will debut for spring 2010 and will be on display at this week’s Magic
tradeshow in Las Vegas.
