COLT Swimwear Collection Ready to Ship

SONOMA, Calif. — Iconic all-male production house COLT Studio Group announced today that it is ready to ship its swimwear collection.

Two styles are currently available — the Pete Kuzak Square Cut and Steve Kelso Swim Brief.

Both styles are available in red and navy, and both sport a prominent white COLT logo on the back side. Each piece retails for $45.95.  

The line was designed, manufactured and distributed by L.A.-based clothing company Timoteo Studio, helmed by chief creative director Timoteo Ocampo and his partner and CEO Joel Johnson.

The Timoteo brand launched in 2001 as a small storefront in West Hollywood, Calif. that manufactured select fashion pieces for men. It has since evolved into one of the leading gay brands sold worldwide. In 2012, Timoteo launched a second label, CellBlock 13, which caters to a cross section of the gay and fetish communities.

COLT signed a deal with Timoteo in October of last year to design and relaunch the Colt Basics apparel line as the rebranded Colt Collection.

"One of the most amazing calls I ever received in my life was from [COLT President] John Rutherford asking my partner Timoteo to design the Colt Collection line," said Johnson. "Colt is an amazing American brand and the original icon for the modern gay movement."
