Since its launch in 1975, Members Only has evolved into an iconic American outerwear brand. Long known for its infamous bomber and racer jackets, the brand has been revitalized into a retro, yet modern look and is on its way to becoming a complete lifestyle brand offering an array of branded products including jackets, tech accessories and more.
Members Only is focused on continuing its growth, with plans to expand into accessories, cold weather products, sportswear, kids apparel, and more. The classic men’s jackets, which can be found in the Men’s Classic and Heritage labels, include the signature Members Only style with an updated fit in a variety of materials including nylon, leather, suede and lightweight down options. Women’s jackets feature the same quality materials, but include stylistic touches of animal prints, sequins, pastels, neons and jewel tones. These modern takes on the classics can be seen throughout the Women’s Contemporary label, as well as the Members Only x Rebecca Eve line, Members Only‘s exclusive women’s label that features a variety of jackets made from fine leather and other luxe materials.
In addition to its ever growing collection of outerwear, Members Only has also debuted its very first Luxury Mobile Case Line, featuring fine leather styles for the iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini and Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets. The line is comprised of 12 different leather patterns in 5 different styles, all crafted to protect and decorate the hottest tech devices on the market. Planning for the additions of laptop bags, as well as plastic, wood and metal case collections is already in the works.
Designed for Millenials and Baby-Boomers alike, Members Only also recently celebrated the launch of its newest collection, Made in America, which will be available for purchase online beginning this month. As the brand’s first venture into the world of men’s sportswear, the label features classic staples including blazers, chinos, cotton tees, denim and more. Featuring a color palette of primarily red, white and blue, the collection draws inspiration from past US Presidents and is manufactured here in the USA.

“Members Only is one of the few brands that has solidified its reputation in outerwear and can be extended from its core product to other categories, such as sportswear and accessories,” says Jaggi Singh, President & CEO of JR Apparel World, LLC, which acquired the brand in 2012. “I see tremendous potential to develop Members Only into a full lifestyle brand.”
Prior to JR Apparel World’s acquisition of Members Only, Singh held the license for the brand and has been manufacturing their outerwear since 2009. Under his leadership, the Members Only outwear business has experienced exponential growth. The brand, which currently has distribution throughout North America, is also focused on overseas expansion and aims to reach Europe, Japan, China and India in the near future.
