Los Angeles, CA – May 9, 2017 — Modern Living with kathy ireland® announces an exclusive interview with Aldus Chapin, President and CEO of Distinctive Apparel, a fast-growing company in the apparel industry.
Chapin will discuss how the company finds value in troubled apparel businesses and invests in them, in an attempt to help revive them.
The company rescues apparel brands out of bankruptcy, giving new life to struggling retail brands that it believes in. Distinctive Apparel is the parent company of Chadwicks of Boston, Metrostyle, Territory Ahead, Chasing Fireflies and TravelSmith. The company was founded in 2011 and is headquartered in Randolph, Massachusetts.
Chapin says that Distinctive Apparel’s business model is different from other apparel retailers’ models. He explains, “Because we invest in troubled businesses, we often come in with no preconceived notions and we’re able to start with a clean slate. We know the functions that every business needs to operate, but we’re able to keep our focus on the merchandise and make sure that we’re communicating the quality and the value to our customers very well. The fact that we’ve kind of emerged from the ashes has really worked to our benefit, and I think that’s why we’re able to continue to acquire businesses without adding a tremendous amount of cost to our overall organization.”
JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Modern Living with kathy ireland®, is happy to feature Distinctive Apparel. He says, “When apparel brands face challenges, some of them seem to just fade away. But when Distinctive Apparel comes in, those brands have the chance to begin anew. It’s truly fascinating to see Distinctive Apparel breathe new life into struggling apparel brands. We’re so thrilled to feature this game-changing company on our show.”
