Vince Camuto’s other menswear categories—including tailored clothing, sportswear, denim, shirts, and formalwear—are produced by Itochu Prominent USA. The neckwear hits stores fall 2013.

“We are proud to play a key role in Vince Camuto’s expansion into the men’s business with the launch of Vince Camuto neckwear,” said Randa’s David Katz. “The line offers a fresh modern spin on a classic look that provides great value along with great style. Vince Camuto is an exciting new member in the Randa stable of brands.”

Camuto added, “We are excited about adding neckwear, an important addition to the Vince Camuto men’s lifestyle collection. Randa Accessories is a best-in-class partner and we believe their team can help deliver on the brand promise of style at an exceptional value.”

Vince Camuto co-founded women’s footwear brand Nine West in 1978. After Nine West was sold to Jones Apparel Group in 1999, Camuto started a new company, Camuto Group, in 2001, making private label women’s footwear. He launched his own eponymous brand in 2005. His first men’s category was fragrance in August last year, followed by apparel last fall.
