Thomas Pink returns to Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club for 2014-2015 Race Series
Thomas Pink, the luxury British shirt-maker, will return to the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club as the Official Apparel Partner for the Old Mutual Top Dog Trophy Series 2014-2015.
Thomas Pink made its first appearance at the Club, complete with bespoke designed Morgan automobile in March of this year, as an Official Partner during the GREAT Nations’ Cup sponsored by UK Trade & Investment.
Thomas Pink will support the entire race series with prizes for the various winners on each occasion and an exquisitely crafted jacket to be presented to the overall winner.
Other sponsors include title sponsor, Old Mutual, the international investment, savings, insurance and banking group, boutique hotel operator, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and the usual array of beverages to complement the post-racing celebrations including Mount Gay Rum, Peroni and Jax Coco.
Torrey J. Dorsey, Corporate and International Partnerships Manager at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club said, “It has been my wish to find a suitable fashion brand for this race series as I have always felt that the overall winner was deserving of a jacket; similar to the famous ‘Green Jacket’ that is awarded to the Masters (golf) winner. We could not have found a better partner than Thomas Pink, particularly given their heritage and signature style.”
