Tommy Bahama Announces 2012 MLB Line of Apparel


From Press Release: Two premier brands, Tommy Bahama and Major League Baseball, have teamed up once again to offer fans a series of collectible, co-branded shirts that pay homage to America’s favorite pastime, baseball.

The collection will feature six shirts, for six teams including the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees,  Detroit Tigers, Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers.  There will also be special release of a 2012 All Star Game shirt that was created for the mid summer classic.

This is the third year that Tommy Bahama and MLB have teamed up to offer these shirts, which are only available in limited quantities and for a few, select teams.

“Something truly special was created when we launched our first ‘Collector’s Edition’ shirt three years ago,” said Terry Pillow, CEO of Tommy Bahama.  ”Since then our customers have asked for more, and we have responded with an exciting new collection that pairs the signature style of the Tommy Bahama brand with the excitement and authenticity of Major League Baseball.”

Also in the works for the 2012 season are a series of MLB themed sportswear including track jackets, half zip pullovers, pigment dyed polos and camp shirts, which have been customized for all 30 MLB teams.

“With this expanded collection, Major League Baseball Properties and Tommy Bahama have again brought the feeling of baseball alive just in time for Opening Day,” said Howard Smith, Senior Vice President, Licensing, Major League Baseball.  “This exclusive collection is consistent with the quality of the Tommy Bahama brand and is designed specifically for fans who want to celebrate their favorite team in a fun and fashionable way.”

The collections will be available at the teams stadium shops, and various specialty retailers.
