Established in 1851, Arrow is one of the oldest and most successfully-branded menswear companies in the United States. First created by Cluett Peabody & Co. on the banks of New York’s Hudson River, the label really took off in the early 1900s when the “Arrow Collar Man” was drawn by illustrator J.C. Leyendecker for a series of advertisements that would continue boosting sales well into the 1930s, and raise the character to icon status. And while the Arrow label as we knew it may have slipped into relative obscurity, Urban Outfitters is reviving it with a six-piece capsule collection slated to hit stores next month. The line is comprised of vintage-y styles inspired from the Arrow’s design archives, complete with the authentic fabrics, cut and collars of the originals.
