According to the LA Times, VF Corporation owns several popular jeanswear brands, including Wrangler, Lee and 7 For All Mankind. VF Corporation and Kohl's divided design responsibilities between their manufacturing headquarters. VF Corporation is responsible for producing the brand's denim products, and Kohl's manages all the remaining aspects of the brand's offerings, which include fragrances, shoes, jewelry and accessories.

According to James Covert of the New York Post, Rock & Republic once sold its jeans at a price point of around $200. Kohl's now sells them at a discounted rate. There was some speculation at the time of Rock & Republic's bankruptcy case that the company's financial crisis was due in part to the founder's lavish lifestyle. Accusations were made that Michael Ball squandered the company's money on lavish items for himself, such as expensive vehicles.
