WHO ARE THESE GUYS?
From clothing lines and music videos, to barbecue sauce and cartoons, identical twin brothers, Chip and Pepper Foster have done it allâ€”with energy that makes most heads spin. In 2003, the identical twins, originally from Canada, launched the premium vintage denim line called Chip & Pepper. The lineâ€™s popularity expanded to include maternity, kids, knitwear, hats, leather goods, and sportswear. The brand also included Chip & Pepper University, a high-end T-shirt line incorporating vintage and original logos from more than 75 universities around the nation. Chip & Pepper is sold through select department and specialty stores in more than 42 countries.
In 2007, Chip and Pepper announced the launch of C7P, A Chip & Pepper Production with department store giant JC Penney. The California surf lifestyle inspired womenâ€™s junior line of denim and sportswear was sold exclusively at JC Penney. Chip & Pepperâ€™s Production C7P and Foster Jeans (friendly wallet prices) saw a boost in sales due to a consumerâ€™s need to be fashionable but on a budget. C7P and Foster Jeansâ€™ high quality denim and design drew all types of shoppers to JC Penney, and attracted major designers to create collections for JC Penney.
Prior to delving into denim, the brothers opened Golf Punk, bringing high-end vintage trends to Melrose. In the 1980â€™s, Chip and Pepperâ€™s knack for fashion became evident, when selling Chip & Pepper Wet Wear t-shirts out of the back of their truck turned into a multi-million dollar business. Theyâ€™ve hosted a cartoon show in LA, â€œThe Look for Lessâ€ on E! Entertainment and the Style Network, and served as fashion correspondents for Extra, where they have covered everything from fashion week to landing Jessica Simpsonâ€™s first post divorce on-camera interview.
