It was back in 2004 that founder, John O'Donnell, was helping a friend with what might be called a "hobby". Little did O'Donnell know at the time that this so called "hobby" would turn into what it is today!
As word quickly spread about the johnnie-O brand, an emergence of shoppers looking to "step out" in a classic, yet fun way followed suit. From its humble beginning as just an ordinary Johnnie-O polo shirt, the johnnie-O clothing line has evolved into an apparel and lifestyle brand distinctly defined as "west coast prep". Items for men, women, and children now include Johnnie-O shirts, belts, hats, socks, sweatshirts, and other specialty items including all weather shorts, the "wedge" collar pique polo, as well as johnnie-O GolfSkins.
