Atticus Clothing CEO and Owner, Dale Masters, has a global vision for the company that started in Los Angeles back in 2001. With distribution in place in North America and Australia, Dale’s vision has recently focused on growing the European and Asian markets where the Atticus brand is already well known due to ongoing distribution and targeted Social Media efforts in the regions.
Firebrand, a preeminent distributor of youth lifestyle, fashion and music forward apparel and accessories will expand Atticus’ already existing distribution within the United Kingdom, Ireland, and the Channel Islands. In addition Firebrand will enhance and unify all aspects of media, music, and regional marketing of the well-known “dead bird” Atticus brand.

Firebrand will establish a unique conduit for Atticus in the UK, by reaching our core consumer through established channels and creative distribution expansion plans.”
Firebrand CEO Ruth Blakemore said “Firebrand recognizes Atticus’ unique history and significance of strong branding with its easily identifiable logo ‘the dead bird’. Using our own roster of international artists, Firebrand looks forward to expanding the brand in the UK and the Atticus Black sub brand alongside broader distribution of the international ranges. In supporting the brands long term integrity, we will continue to grow the ever expanding core fan following that Atticus has enjoyed since inception”
