SAN ANTONIO, Texas (January 21, 2002) -- Terry Martin Sportswear, Inc. announces it will be the designer label for Texace, a U.S. manufacturer of headwear that will be the exclusive provider of Terry Martin-designed headwear to the golf and resort industry.

The "Terry Martin by Texace" collection will feature Texace's "Unihat" patent-pending fitting system that is a one-size-fits-all fitted cap offering.

"This alliance with Texace allows both parties to take full advantage of their assets," Terry Martin Sportswear President and Head Designer Terry Martin Fortuna said. "Texace utilizing its expertise as a true, from scratch, U.S. quality manufacturer of headwear and Terry Martin applying its expertise as a full-design house and creative source for Texace... it's a combination that we at Terry Martin feel will, without a doubt, make a significant impact on the Headwear displays in 2002 and beyond."

The Terry Martin label will feature the D.R.A.P.E. (Dimensional Raised Applique Process -- Exclusive), which process is the blending of three different medias as they relate to decorating a garment or cap with a logo.

Terry Martin Sportswear made its national debut at the 2001 PGA Merchandise Show with overwhelming approval for its brand. Today, Terry Martin Sportswear has over 300 accounts and will be an On-Site PGA Licensee at the 2004 Ryder Cup Matches at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Mich.


Terry Martin Sportswear's patent-pending three-media application process for logos and designs is unique in that it incorporates embroidery, appliqué (computer-aided design cutting of fabric preferably suede or felt) and special poly foam to create a look with a design that is both luxurious and rich.


The Terry Martin Sportswear line of products includes clothing and accessories, including: Outerwear -- Polar fleece vest and jackets, suede Dobby microfibre vests and jackets, and twisted melange yarn collared sweaters.

Knit shirts -- Mercerized cotton yarn that is fire-singed and alkalide-dipped for a mercerized look and feel that is outstanding. Available in Pique knit and jersey knit.

Polynosic Silk Woven Shirts -- Full button front with a spread collar retro 1950s look, but very fashion forward plaid prints. Can be worn playing golf or after golf to dinner with a sport coat or without -- a sharp, downtown Fifth Avenue look.

Headwear -- An exclusive category offered in three core styles -- in a six-panel uncontructed heavy twill with an extended bill (a quarter-inch longer than standard); in a solid and a sandwich-lid style; and in a six-panel brushed twill semi-contructed rolled crown.


January 24-27, Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL Terry Martin Sportswear will be located in booth No. 22514 (in the lobby area directly across from Ralph Lauren/Polo Golf).

Texace Headwear will be located at booth No. 12025.
