The LT Apparel Company Background

It was in 1958 that three business people determined that the children's wear market would benefit from a strong, recognized brand - at a time when there were relatively few. They launched LT Apparel Group and set out to produce durable, well-styled clothing that was value priced. The company's early entry into the children's wear market made LT Apparel Group a pacesetter from the beginning, and the company soon became a company of "firsts". It was the first to successfully bring fashion-coordinate groupings to the mass market, the first to produce and mass market a school uniform line for public schools, and the first to offer guaranteed next-day UPS shipping.

Along with these firsts, LT Apparel Group has distinguished itself through other competitive advantages. It is one of the only companies that produces a complete line of all categories for both girls and boys, including activewear, denim, holiday wear, outerwear, playwear, school uniforms, sportswear and swimwear. LT Apparel Group is also one of the few children's wear companies that develops and merchandises branded lines for all market tiers, from department stores to discount stores to independents. In fact, more than half the country's top 100 retailers sell LT Apparel Group's children's wear and our lines are available at thousands of locations nationwide.

As it has grown -- along with generations of America's children, the company has developed an unusual level of expertise in designing, merchandising, and selling highly successful lines of children's wear. Today, LT Apparel Group is distinguished as one of the most reliable, efficient and creative manufacturers in the children's apparel industry. Each branded line incorporates a fresh new looks, innovative fabrication, exciting retail presentation and great value that keep LT Apparel Group brands so popular.
