Ektelon, a division of Benetton Sportsystem USA Inc, is based in Bordentown, New Jersey. Ektelon was founded by Franklin W. “Bud” Held in 1964 when he developed an aluminum tennis racquet and racquet stringing machine in his garage in San Diego. Only six years later, Ektelon equipment became such a hit with tournament players that the company had to move into a larger facility in San Diego in order to keep up with consumer demands. Ektelon products have enjoyed the longest, most successful reign of dominance in the sport of racquetball. Ektelon’s heritage includes the introduction of more revolutionary technologies and programs to the sport of racquetball than any other company. Ektelon shoes and products employ innovations that include oversized racquetball racquets, the Racquet Taper System (RTS), Power Ring(r) racquets, O3 Engineered racquets, Natural Foot Shape Footwear technology, among others. Ektelon introduced their Tour Series footwear line in July 2002. As a sponsor of the International Racquetball Tour and the Ladies Professional Racquetball Association, further developing the line of Ektelon shoes was a natural progression. Ektelon shoes are extremely comfortable and provide technical and performance features for the modern racquetball player.
In 1963, Ben Sherman came back from America with the idea of making a button-down shirt. Having noticed the style adopted by polo players of the time who used the button-downs to keep their shirt collars where they should be while riding, he set about creating his own. Taking inspiration from his father’s work as a tailor, he created an icon and this practical, yet stylish garment was soon adopted by a set of style leaders back in England. The swinging Sixties gave British youth culture more fashion, money, and freedom than ever before. The feeling was that there simply had never been anything on the English scene like the pale pinks and blues, candy stripes, and gingham of these expertly tailored garments. The Ben Sherman shirt was revolutionary and so was the mod movement. Now in business for five decades, the Ben Sherman brand has been embraced by almost every youth culture or style movement since the mods and is worn by the bands and fashion leaders of the current decade. Ben Sherman now presents a full lifestyle offering from chinos to sweaters, tees to outerwear and continues to embrace a heritage of modernism.
