Naadam: A New DAVID Brand That HENRYs Love

To learn more about the Davids, I sat down with Mortimer Singer, Chief Executive Officer of TRAUB. Singer credits the launch of Bonobos in 2007 with triggering the ‘New Davids’ trend. “Bonobos was a seminal moment in this shift into a new era of the ‘I-brand.’  It’s about the consumer ‘laying on of hands’ to a brand. The customer becomes part of an extended tribe of people bound together by the brand. The ‘New Davids’ brands are forging the future of retail in this HENRY millennial world.”
