After a very successful career in football, Carl continued his success trend in business, launching G-III Sports. With his new business, he made outerwear for the NFL. Until one day when reebok bought the licensing rights to make the outerwear. Rather than giving up, cutting costs, and downsizing, Carl and his team hustled working with smaller shops and in return only lost about 10% of his business. Carl Knew that reebok could not make the outerwear as good as they could, and in 18 months G-III Sports was awarded the licensing for outerwear again, which now doubled his business vs. what it was before.
