Belongs to JA Apparel Corp
Since its inception in 1987, Joseph Abboud Co has grown into a $400 million worldwide lifestyle brand with an expanding number of product lines including men's apparel and accessories', boys apparel, and home furnishings.
JA Apparel Corp, which owns the Joseph Abboud brand name, was founded in 1987, and the menswear label has since grown into a $150 million worldwide wholesaler, retailer, and licensor of men’s clothing, accessories, and home furnishings. Abboud launched a home ware line in 2001 that retails at Bed Bath & Beyond.
Lebanese Abboud was the first designer to win the CFDA award as Best Menswear Designer two years in a row. He sold the company in spring 2005 and left to pursue other interests after creative differences with Chief Executive Marty Staff, a larger-than-life apparel executive who previously worked for Hugo Boss. The two met while working together at Polo Ralph Lauren.
