ryan2Izod rolled out a new line of Indy Racing League-themed jeans and shirts at a leading fashion show in Las Vegas last month.

This week Izod announced they will rev up a major marketing campaign including in-store displays at major outlets nationwide—including Macy’s—and an aggressive mass media campaign featuring driver Ryan Hunter-Reay. The new clothing line, Izod officials said, should be in stores by spring. Izod is also hoping to use Hunter-Reay and other IRL drivers at fashion shows and autograph sessions held in conjunction with races next year.

In July, Izod signed a deal to provide clothes for Indy Racing League and Indianapolis Motor Speedway on- and off-track staff, but this significantly expands that deal. Other than Peak selling IRL branded automotive supplies, the league has no other retail deal of this kind.

Michael Kelly, executive vice president for Izod’s parent company, said retailers nationwide have expressed strong interest in carrying the clothing line. He said part of the line will have a classic look inspired by the “Steve McQueen days.”

Izod shot commercials featuring Hunter-Reay at Infineon Raceway Aug. 23-24. Those ads will air on television and at movie theaters nationwide, Izod officials said. IRL and Speedway officials granted Izod access of its century old archive of photos and images for use in the new clothing line. The clothing line will include jeans and a variety of active wear for men and women. The clothing will be adorned with a combination of IRL and IMS prints, patches and embroidered logos.
  • More good news for the IRL. I wonder if the yellow shirts will be sporting the Izod Alligator?
  • Izod makes jeans?
  • Is RhR still with Rubby Gurden's sister?

    I wonder how long this relationship will last....Pep Boys anyone? :lol:
  • Is Izod looking to have their products get on the express path to the Dollar General closeout rack? :lol: Sure seems like it. They'll learn. The hard way.
  • Stan and DaHooey - Equates to Bozo's Incorporated - embittered, unforgiving, denial of what can be accomplished. Perhaps you two should try to embrace a modicum of forgiveness and understanding and knock off the constant criticism. Hope you can move on and move out of your foul moods soon.
  • Izod already has IRL promo at the bottom of their website and yes Casey they make jeans:

My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via fidelityloanfirm@outlook.com

  4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

  5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
