Duck Head, the beloved clothing brand worn by flocks of '80s preppies, is back.
The company, known for its classic canvas chinos and knit shirts, was established in 1865 in Nashville. During the past few years, Duck Head was sold to several companies before being purchased by Prospect Brands of Greensboro, N.C.
Currently the company offers men's apparel at its website, Duckhead.com. Plans are to launch in select retail stores in August.
