“It certainly seems like the right time for this brand to resurface,” said new Owner and Sales Manager Rick Hansen. “Retailers are still looking for unsullied brands that can offer something unique and meaningful to their core core consumer.”

Compatriot has partnered with the distinctive design company Distrikt Creative Group for product design, graphic direction and promotional concepts. Distrikt Creative Group works with other top clients such as Analog Clothing and Nike.
