A round of Series A funding has seen menswear startup Mizzen and Main LLC pocket USD1.2m to expand its range of moisture-wicking shirts. VegasTechFund and Astor & Black founder, David Schottenstein, led the investment round, with a number of other individuals contributing. An initial round of angel investment won the firm USD250,000.
The Mizzen and Main clothing range is made from so-called ‘performance fabrics’, giving shirts the feel of quality athletic jerseys, while retaining the same tailored look. The fabric possesses enhanced stretch and moisture-wicking characteristics, which has made the company’s dress shirt a particularly successful sell.
