Tommy Bahama - Beach and resort apparel
Tommy Bahama is an upscale casual apparel retailer. They offer men's pants, jeans and shorts, as well as swimwear. They are perhaps best well known for their button down, short sleeved lounge shirts, often with a beachy or floral motif. A beach themed wedding collection is sold, with lightweight white linen shirts and pants for men and long maxi dresses for women. The women's apparel section features capris, shorts, swimsuits and sandals. There is a wide variety of swimsuits sold for both men and women, from bikinis to swim trunks. A beach, home and gift section offers beach gear like umbrellas, towels, and bags, as well as candles, cigarware and coffee table books. There is also a home section that sells bedding, tabletop linens and entertaining accessories. Many locations feature a full restaurant and bar, generally in coastal or beach locations with the option to sit on an outdoor patio. The brand released its own rum, and thus features many cocktail recipes with the liquor as the main ingredient.
Tommy Bahama - Relaxing apparel
Tommy Bahama was founded in 1992 by Tony Margolis, Bob Emfield and Lucio Dalla Gasperina in Seattle, Washington. The original concept for the brand was upscale casual men's apparel. The brand is offered at a number of department store retailers and vacation resorts. There are approximately 90 branded, company owned locations nationwide, and 13 of these feature a restaurant and bar. The retailer produced and began to sell its own brand of rum in 2007, and opened the Tommy Bahama bar in Yankee Stadium in 2009. In the same year, the brand signed an agreement with Major League Baseball to produce graphic t-shirts for a limited edition MLB branded vintage series.
