From: Sales Director Gary Bracelin, "It's exciting to have Fred aboard and to have his help driving Homeschool's E.U. presence. Having worked with him in the past at Westbeach, I know he is a solid guy with great experience."

"I am excited to be heading up the launch into Europe starting with an exclusive capsule collection in TSA in the U.K. Homeschool makes technical outerwear to meet the demands of the Pacific Northwest. I see huge potential for the brand as more and more people head off the beaten track into the backcountry and demand more from their outerwear. The use of 37.5 Technology in all layers means Homeschool outerwear out-performs anything else on the market. Breathability is the key," says Royle.
