Our exceptional third quarter results were driven by the continued strength at our largest brand, Tommy Bahama, where we increased our sales 20% year-over-year, combined with strong top line growth across our entire portfolio of brands. Importantly, our performance was highlighted by another period of robust full-price selling as our merchandise offerings continue to resonate strongly with our core consumers. We also advanced our long-term strategy with our acquisition of the Johnny
