Target executive vice-president and chief merchandising officer Mark Tritton said:Denim is a part of every woman’s wardrobe, and with fewer options in the marketplace and learnings from the brands we’ve recently launched, we’re excited to bring our guests a lifestyle brand rooted in denim that’s also an amazing everyday value.

The retail company further noted that the apparel under the Universal Thread brand will be available in sizes beginning from 00 to 26W.
