Southern Tide (“Southern Tide” or “the Company”) is one of the nation’s fastest growing lifestyle apparel brands. Inspired by its “Built with a Purpose” ethos, the Company has evolved into an entire apparel collection built on the same high standards as the first benchmark product – the iconic men’s Skipjack Polo. Southern Tide’s comprehensive product line for men includes shirts, pants, shorts, outerwear, ties, swimwear, footwear and accessories. The Company’s product lines also include a ladies’ line and a children’s line.

Background to the Transaction

Founded in 2005 by Allen and Dianne Stephenson, Southern Tide has experienced rapid consumer and specialty retailer acceptance and enthusiasm for the product and the brand. In 2013, the Company began looking for a financial partner that could provide the necessary financial and operational resources to support future growth of the business. Brazos made an investment in the Company in August 2013 and served as a value-added partner as the Company continued to execute its growth plan.
