MINNEAPOLIS (May 14, 2018) – Fisher + Baker, a premium menswear brand designing clothes with timeless style and outdoor sensibility, has signed Jon and Tiffany Kalupa of the Avalon Group as its East Coast sales representation.
“Jon and Tiffany are coming on board just as we unveil our fifth and largest collection for spring/summer 2019,” said Mike Arbeiter, president of Fisher + Baker. “We’re confident their experience in better menswear and the fashion industry will prove invaluable as we continue to grow the brand.”
With more than 20 years of retail and sales experience, the Avalon Group brings vast knowledge and deep relationships to a key territory. Prior to establishing their own rep group, Jon and Tiffany both held executive positions at high profile designer labels including Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Moschino and Jean Paul Gaultier.
The Avalon Group will be responsible for supporting retailers along the east cost from Maine to Florida. Based in North Carolina, the Avalon Group also represents the Jean Shop and Scales.
“Fisher + Baker is part of a growing trend of premium menswear brands that are investing heavily in the retail experience – and we love it,” said Jon Kalupa. “Some call it old school, but we like to think of it as bringing an often overlooked personal touch to modern business relationships.”
Fisher + Baker was founded by product visionary and craftsman Greg Horvitz, and named after two of his maker passions. With its growing collection of premium shirts, jackets and outerwear, Fisher + Baker excels as a crossover of stylish menswear and outdoor lifestyle apparel.
