Designer receives notoriety for Norwegian mens curling teams uniforms
on Tuesday,February 23,2010 23:02
Since the debut of the Norwegian men's curling team at this year's Winter Olympics, Sonoma, California-based designer Scott "Woody" Woodworth has seen an exponential growth in business, Reuters reports.
Woodworth, who owns the golfing gear brand Loudmouth Golf, created the harlequin-style red, white and blue trousers that were adopted by Norway's curler's for the games. Although the team purchased the pants through a retailer, Woodworth hopes that their popularity will help him enter other athletic markets.
"We're definitely going to go into skiing next, [even if] it means doing a whole new lot of research and development," he told the media outlet.
Golfer John Daly and Alice Cooper are two famous fans of Loudmouth Golf, which was founded by Woodworth - a former graphic designer - when he was searching for something fun to wear to a golf tournament 10 years ago.
Woodworth will have one more high-profile client to add to his roster after the games are over, as the Norwegian team has announced they will give one of their uniforms to King Harald when they return home, the Vancouver Sun reports.
