PricewaterhouseCoopers Corporate Finance LLC advised UNTUCKit in raising $30 million in funding from Kleiner Perkins.

UNTUCKit is one of the most successful and fastest growing direct-to-consumer apparel concepts in the market today, with strong consumer engagement and an ability to expand into new product categories and markets quickly by bypassing traditional wholesale channels.

The concept-driven nature of the brand has enabled UNTUCKit to leverage untraditional advertising channels to build market awareness in an exceptionally cost effective manner.

UNTUCKit introduced its signature product in 2012—a unique style of men's shirts designed specifically to be worn untucked. The company has since expanded to offer a full menswear line, along with a new women's collection that launched in Spring 2017.

The company built its business online and has since successfully expanded into physical retail with 5 locations today and another 15 scheduled to open this year.

With the investment from Kleiner Perkins, the company will accelerate growth by developing its retail footprint, expanding its women's line and launching children's apparel.
