Franklin Marshall Sale
In 1999, after seeing an official Franklin & Marshall sweatshirt, a company[4] based in Verona, Italy began producing clothing in a vintage 1950s collegiate-style with the words "Franklin and Marshall" on them. F&M alumni began to report seeing F&M merchandise for sale in Europe, which puzzled the college.[5] In 2001, Tim McGraw posed for publicity photos wearing a "Franklin Marshall Wrestling" t-shirt[6], one of which was included in the CD booklet for his album Set This Circus Down. When the college became flooded with inquires about its (nonexistent) connection to the singer, they began to investigate further and discovered that the Franklin Marshall Clothing company was using its name without permission. In 2003, after lengthy discussions, the college decided not to sue and instead agreed to accept a licensing fee from the company so that they could continue to produce their products, which had begun to gain popularity with youth, especially in the United Kingdom.[7] Today, the line is sold in upscale stores, such as Bloomingdales and, as part of the agreement with the college, at the Franklin and Marshall College bookstore.[8] However, many of the designs omit Franklin & Marshalls ampersand and instead reads simply "Franklin Marshall." The clothing company also opened a flagship store in Milan, and another shop in Paris
