The number of times we've typed the brand name 'Bill Blass' with zero intention to discuss clothing kind of annoys us. Alas, there is news to be reported! The company has sold to Peacock International Holdings LLC for 15 million dollars less than NexCen Brands hoped for. Ouch. The shell of Bill Blass will presumably sit in the offices of Peacock until the dress shirt and neckwear company figures out what to do with the thing. Or so it is suggested. We say, good idea! Let the economy strengthen and then do what Americans do best and reinvent yourself!
