British shirt-maker Thomas Pink is set to be revived after former JD Sports executive Nick Preston acquired the brand.
According to the Mail on Sunday, Nick Preston has brokered a deal to take control of LVMH’s shirtmaker brand, including its intellectual property but not its website or shops.
The retailer ceased operations last year amid the Covid-19 pandemic, as LVMH Group was seeking to sell the brand. Last December, the French luxury group removed Thomas Pink from its “Fashion and Leather Goods” website page.
According to Retail Gazette, Thomas Pink updated its own website last month, saying “We’re excited to announce that we’re returning to our roots with the same team that has helped build Thomas Pink Shirtmakers over the years”.
“We have some things to iron out and button up, but will be back soon with an improved website to offer you the highest quality English shirting made for modern life that you have come to know and love.”
