Harbor, based in Port Washington, N.Y., has been granted rights to PVH’s Izod trademark as well as the Izod PerformX, Izod Jeans, Izod Classix, Izod Sport and Izod Luxury Sport sub-brands. The initial term of the agreement is through 2015 with possible extensions through 2020 at PVH’s option. Deliveries of the Izod collection will begin this summer.

Since late 2006, Harbor has been the global licensee for footwear sold on a wholesale basis under PVH’s Bass and G.H. Bass family of trademarks. In addition to the U.S., Harbor markets Bass footwear in Europe, Japan and South Africa and is currently working to expand the brand into China.

Dating back to the 1930s, the sports-inspired Izod brand now is licensed to 31 companies covering 28 different product categories and is sold in the U.S. and 22 international markets.
