More comfort, more time, more luxury
Dear customers and business partners
ROY ROBSON is a brand with Hanseatic roots. This is not only
because our headquarters are in Lüneburg, a city recently designated
a Hanseatic city; it is also because the ROY ROBSON collection com-
bines Nordic elegance with Hanseatic flair. What do we associate with
Hanseatic tradition? On the commercial side, reliability in entrepre-
neurial activities and preserving values; on the fashion side an exclusive
yet fresh, modern style: a mix of urbanity and casual sportiness. In
order to bring this style even more into the spotlight, we are currently
working with images from the Hanseatic City of Hamburg. You will
have seen these on our newly designed stand at the Pitti Uomo trade
show in Florence.They are also reflected in our shop window concept
for the new autumn/winter 2009/2010 collection and – no less impor-
tant – they played a central role in this year’s Fashion Show in Düs-
seldorf. Together with our guests in Club 3001 in the “Medienhafen”,
we brought the motto of the event, “Urban Silhouettes”, to life. At the
same time we were able to refute a preconception: people from the
north of Germany do know how to celebrate with exuberance. In this
issue of Gesprächsstoff you will be able to read about what has moved
us here in Lüneburg at the beginning of the new year.

ROY ROBSON fashion show at club 3001
Hanseatic elegance and Nordic exclusivity: ROY ROBSON
presented the new autumn/winter 2009/2010 collection at a
fashion show followed by an after-show party in Düsseldorf. On
Sunday, 1 February, an impressive excursion to ROY ROBSON’s
Hanseatic roots awaited about 400 guests. The theme of “Ham-
burg” in Düsseldorf? The hip Club 3001, located direct at the
“Medienhafen”, not far from the ROY ROBSON showroom, was
the ideal platform for the show. This was the third time that
ROY ROBSON showed its new collection with huge success at
a major event in Düsseldorf to coincide with the CPD. Visitors
thoroughly enjoyed the fashion show and the party that followed
– a good mood and a good atmosphere that will hopefully be
carried through to the season.

here’s to continued good cooperation:
werder bremen and ROY ROBSON enter the new season together
Things are always moving in sponsoring business in the
German football league. Changes in lead sponsors, equip-
ment suppliers and partners are a part of everyday life.
The fact that Werder Bremen and ROY ROBSON have
enjoyed such a long partnership is thus quite remark-
able – a good partnership to the benefit of both parties.
Mid-February once again saw ROY ROBSON having to
take one of the company’s most important decisions: the
choice of outfit for the team in the 2009/2010 season.
General Manager Klaus Allofs was joined by Oliver Rau
and Olaf Rebbe from the Werder Marketing Department
and Media Director Tino Polster in making a choice for
the team. We can already disclose just how the Werder
Bremen players and officials will look in the new season:
everyone was quite taken with the NOS 5010 suit in blue.
The new NON IRON shirt in fine blue stripes combined
with a tie in a fashionable violet design will go with the
suit. Dark blue as a trend colour caught on for the casu-
al outfit too. The 5574/219 microcord sports jacket has
all the ideal qualities, especially for the players. It has a
fashionable look and is suitable for travelling as it hardly
creases. Jeans and a blue shirt in gingham checks go with
the jacket.The dark blue patterned pullover gives the out-
fit a perfect appearance.
new shop window concept with “depth”
by stephanie meß
Every label comes into contact with the cus-
tomer through the styling of its shop window
– and we are no exception.
The new ROY ROBSON concept turns its back
on the old one-dimensional look and instead
makes use of a three-dimensional design.
Well-known places of interest in Hamburg,
such as the “Chilehaus” and the “Cap San Die-
go” will be set in scene and create experiences
to stimulate the senses. Through the curved
construction, the area of the shop window is
used effectively and at the same time gains an
optical 3-D effect. This makes the theme of
“Hamburg” and the Hanseatic orientation of
ROY ROBSON tangible.
This shop window concept is scheduled for
casual and ready-to-wear garments and is adap-
ted to the current colour themes of the season
by exchanging individual objects or outfits.
more comfort, more time, more luxury

THE NEW PRODUCT
An absolute highlight of the autumn/winter 2009/2010 shirt collection is the market launch of a very special two-ply shirt.
An innovative finishing process has enabled us for the first time ever to produce a high-quality two-ply garment that has the qualities
of a non-iron shirt. The advantages of a fine thread, such as durability and a bright lustre, have been combined with a particularly
comfortable feel. ROY ROBSON is offering the shirt in both its NOS range and in the collection with a slim fit and Kent collar.
The shirts are available in white poplin, light-blue micro-checks, and grey mille-rayé, as well as matchstick stripes and fancy stripes
in fresh colours.
The high-quality workmanship using a 120/2 warp yarn twisted from two fine single threads and a 70/1 compact weft yarn make
the shirt very breathable and easy to care for. The ROY ROBSON luxury shirt features hanging tags, collar studs and sewn-in labels.

autumn/winter 2009/2010 collection
Urban silhouettes with a Nordic touch: the latest ROY ROBSON collection returns to the roots of the brand and introduces
a new stylistic element. A lanyard knot is used as a signet in the form of embroidery in different visual designs and positions on
clothing in the range of businesswear and casual wear. It symbolises the Hanseatic origins of ROY ROBSON. Influenced by the urban
flair of the big city, the collection displays the typical ROY ROBSON style: Nordic exclusivity combined with Hanseatic elegance.
