Seattle, WA – June 16, 2014 – SanMar Corporation, a leading industry supplier of apparel and accessories, celebrates the 20th anniversary of its flagship brand, Port Authority. Launched in 1994 with just a couple of jackets, the brand has evolved to become an industry staple, and now includes over 500 choices for apparel, bags and caps.
“In 1994, American workplace attire was formally shifting to more casual looks,” said Marty Lott, founder and CEO of SanMar. “Port Authority was born to meet that trend, and I continue to be impressed by the work done by everyone here at SanMar to keep the brand fresh and fashionable, while staying true to our uniforming roots.”
To celebrate this milestone, SanMar developed this video that looks back on the early days of Port Authority, while demonstrating how the brand’s focus on fit, fashion and function have evolved.
