Zephyr Headwear and the University of Connecticut are pleased to announce that UConn has named Zephyr Headwear as an exclusive +1 mid and tier headwear provider for the University beginning March 1, 2017. Zephyr now joins Nike, the sideline provider as the sole source for UConn headwear in all mid and upper tier stores worldwide. Zephyr's product line includes all headwear from traditional baseball type silhouettes to beanies, kids, women's styles, and more. At the UConn bookstore Zephyr, Nike, and Legacy are the exclusive headwear providers.
As part of Zephyr's Brand Ambassador Initiative, Zephyr is making a significant financial and personal investment in building the UConn brand locally, nationally, and internationally. Zephyr will also be invested in and actively engaged with the students, staff, athletic department, and alumni at UConn.
"I am incredibly excited that UConn and Zephyr will be partnering on this retail exclusive," said UConn Associate Athletic Director Kyle Muncy. "From the first time I met David and his team, it was clear that they had a passion for their product and for the college fans that buy hats, more so than any other licensee I have gotten to know. We are fortunate to have the talented Zephyr team creating a UConn headwear line that will be perfect and unique for Husky fans of all ages."
Zephyr Headwear, established in 1993 and headquartered in northern Colorado, is known as a leader in creativity and quality and holds headwear licenses with more than 300 colleges.
