Fruit Of The Loom (US)
Memorably named Fruit Of The Loom is one of America's top two manufacturers of underwear and intimates. Its core brand is Fruit Of The Loom itself, which encompasses a broad range of men's, women's and children's underwear and innerwear. After several years of steady decline, Fruit Of The Loom was rescued from bankruptcy protection in 2002 by Berkshire Hathaway. Performance has improved dramatically since then, helped along by the resurrection of the popular "Fruit Guys" marketing campaign, first used in the 1970s. The Fruit Guys were finally retired again in 2013. The company has also expanded through acquisition, bolting on Russell Athletic sportswear as well as a collection of women's intimates brands including Vanity Fair and Lily Of France.
