The Italian’s are very astute and grab a great fashion opportunity when they see it. Andrea Pensiero and Giuseppe Albarelli are two designers who live up to this accolade. A chance finding of an old Franklin and Marshall sweatshirt in a second hand clothing shop in London inspired them to found a sporty clothing brand based on the alumni theme. At the time the two Italian designers were unaware that the sweatshirt had originated from a world famous American college and set up their brand in the year 2000. By 2003 Franklin and Marshall College had got wind of the design company and contacted the two designers and worked out a licensing deal. As a result of the deal Franklin and Marshall College receive a percentage of all American sales but none from the rest of the world.
As it happens, the connection between Franklin and Marshall clothing and Franklin and Marshall clothing has resulted in both institutions being able to promote each other. The attendance at Franklin and Marshall college has increased since the introduction of the brand and Franklin and Marshall clothing benefit from being able to showcase their new designs to the intended demographic with very little effort. The Alumni look is sporty, comfortable and very fresh, Franklin and Marshall are particularly appealing because it is the all American look with a subtle Italian twist. Franklin and Marshall clothing remains loyal to the grey, blue, black and white of the college colours little splashes of red add extra impact to the clothing design.
