A-Kurtz Cap Selling Out at Enrique Iglesias Concerts
While on his Euphoria Tour, Enrique Iglesias continues to be spotted in our A-Kurtz Fritz cap!
The tour, which started late January 2011, has sold out in numerous venues across the nation, and is soon headed to Europe. While on tour, fans at his shows can purchase a limited edition of Enrique's favorite A-Kurtz style, Fritz, with his tour name embellished on the side. So far, they have sold out of everything we have sent them, and we are gearing up to send more for his European tour! Below are photos from a recent concert... and yes, Enrique is wearing Fritz!
Derick Melander Sculptures Featured PAi Accessories at Project LV
This year at Project LV, PAi accessories took on new identities! Each piece, whether it was a fedora, scarf or belt, came together through the hands of Artist Derick Melander to become a part of something larger. Derick Melander took our pieces of art and designed, crafted and sculpted his own piece of art. Featured at Project LV, the Derick Melander exhibit featured three sculptures, two of which showcased PAi licensed brands True Religion, Ben Sherman, A-Kurtz and Robert Graham accessories.
The first sculpture, titled "Galaxy," consisted of 60 scarves and 3 belts which held the scarves together. In total, the piece measured 8" x 32" x 32".
The second piece featured a mobile of our fedoras hanging at least 30 feet from the convention center ceiling.

Great Perry Ellis Review from NYFW on Vainstyle.com
The Perry Ellis Fall 2011 Men’s Collection presented at New York Fashion Week was highly received! Our hats, gloves and scarves were a major success.
Reviewed by Vainstyle.com, "When it’s good, it’s good and Perry Ellis’ Fall 2011 Men’s Collection, presented at New York Fashion Week was just that... Styled with all sorts of fantastic accessories like wool hats, fingerless gloves, scarves and most notably, trousers tucked into thick wool socks, everything just flowed...This Perry Ellis collection may very well be one of the greats, creating the unique hybrid of clothing that is appealing to both, the stylish fashion forward man, and the regular everyday- fashion wearing man."
