According to Fleet Street founder and CEO Manny Haber, change is good. But evolution is even better. “In this business, it is not enough to accept changes, you have to create it,” says Haber. “That takes a deliberate process, not simply chasing orders. At Fleet Street, we know how to move quickly, because we always remember to think first”. That straight-talking philosophy has grounded Fleet Street’s growth into one of the country’s top five women’s outerwear resources. Founded in 1964, the firm initially focused on rainwear, and quickly made a name for itself through product innovation and smart sourcing, becoming the first major U.S. maker to import better rain coats from Japan and Hong Kong. Fleet Street also earned a reputation for its reliable fit and quality; stores quickly embraced it as a partner they could depend on to deliver coats that sell easily and consistently, year after year. Today, Fleet Street provides a comprehensive range of Outerwear and Swimwear products to an equally expansive roster of clients at every level of retailing, extending from exclusive specialty stores to the largest department stores globally. Fleet Street has licensed collections including Frye Outwear & Swim, NineWest Outerwear & Swim, Rachel Roy Outerwear & Swim, Kensie Outerwear & Swim, C&C California Swim, as well as its other proprietary brands, which include Cyn & Luca, Donatella and Fleet Street. Fleet Street also develops and produces complete private label brand programs for many of the country’s top-ranked apparel retailers. Headquartered on Seventh Avenue in New York City, Fleet Street maintains a state-of-the-art distribution center in California, along with a global sourcing network that includes long-established production partnerships throughout Asia and Eastern Europe, as well as with quality oriented domestic factories. A family owned firm, Fleet Street employs a staff of more than 300 world-wide, under the direction of Founder Manny Haber and his sons, Ray and Steve Haber.
