That could have been the place, it was 1989 or 90. No Royals that I recall. The guys from the UK office were getting feedback on new designs for the new line and seeding the market with free clothing. I guess thatís why they targeted wealthy kids, for their influence with peers.
How I got from Sporting Goods into this industry? Long story short. Greenville, SC where I live, used to be a hot bed for sporting goods companies, Adidas, Umbro Dunlop, Maxfli, Slazenger and many more were all once located in Greenville, SC.
Umbro USA division bought the parent company, Umbro UK/Worldwide from the Humphrey family. The sporting goods business market later changed in Greenville, I deiced to stay a travel to continue working in that industry. My wife asked me to close down my consulting business, travel less and help grow her construction services business. We are on the construction side of cleaning. All of her family and relatives are in the construction business.
