Delaney has a lot of experience with the English Laundry brand—he was its sales director for sportswear at Oxford Apparel and had launched the brand as national sales manager at Defiance Apparel’s New York showroom.
Roffe Accessories got the license for English Laundry woven sport shirts in November.
“I’m thrilled to bring John onboard and confident that he will be an asset to our company, given his years of experience in the men’s sportswear market,” commented Roffe Accessories founder Murray Roffe. “I know our creativity in the woven shirt business and our ability to bring great product with speed to the market will give us a big advantage in the market. We plan to shake up the sportswear business in the same manner as we have packaged dress shirts.”
Delaney added, “Joining this very entrepreneurial environment gives me the opportunity to launch the men’s woven sportswear business and find ways to lead Roffe Accessories to a new plateau.”
