The roots of OOBE BRAND 161 King. St reach well beyond 1994 and Easley, South Carolina, where Tom Merritt and Mike Pereyo decided to build upon their friendship born at Clemson University…that year just happens to be when they cemented the idea of creating an outdoor lifestyle apparel company. As with other values-based heritage brands and outfitters that came of age during that era, OOBE sought to regard people over profits while developing a company culture and manufacturing network to mirror their convictions. Fortunately, doing good in business turned out to be good for business, as well. Circa 2000, OOBE bolstered through strategic partnerships where they offered their design expertise to other quality conscious and brand-centric companies. These enduring relationships are the foundation of their business today, a day in which they proudly present OOBE BRAND 161 King. St to you. See OOBE face to face at the Charleston flagship or select Bloomingdale's locations.
