The Irish Setter brand, long known for its performance hunting boots, has extended its brand to apparel. Richlu Manufacturing is an authorized licensee of Red Wing Shoe Company. The line includes performance upland jackets and rugged casual jackets, vests, shirts and pants that are hunting-inspired.

“Richlu was attracted to Red Wing’s Irish Setter brand because of its strength among both retailers and consumers,” said Richlu Vice President Gavin Rich. “Irish Setter’s loyal following appreciates its rich hunting footwear heritage. We’re confident that the generations who have worn the footwear will be equally receptive to the apparel.”

“We thought the Irish Setter brand had the potential to broaden beyond footwear and that apparel would be a good start. Richlu’s values are in alignment with Irish Setter’s core values of quality, comfort and durability. That was a very important consideration when we evaluated this opportunity,” said Mark Dinndorf, Irish Setter Brand Manager. “We’re especially impressed with Richlu’s commitment to quality.”
