When Island Company was started, Antle and his girlfriend drove from store to store selling the line of 13 bikinis from their car. When they separated, Antle kept Island Company and added a men's line and other new products. The line was soon picked up by destination resort shops in the Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons Hotels, starting a transition for Island Company to become a full lifestyle resort brand, beyond just a bikini line.
In the economic downturn of 2008, the firm opened 5 retail stores in 18 months, at a time when most other retailers were closing their doors. However, some of those retail locations have since closed. Since then, the firm was listed in Inc. magazine's Top 5000 fastest growing companies in the U.S.A, nominated from 2010 to 2015.
In October 2014, Island Company filed a lawsuit against Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner for trademark infringement against Island Company's slogan "Quit your job. Buy a ticket. Get a tan. Fall in love. Never return." The Jenners had created a tee shirt, through their deal with teen surf retailer PacSun, using the phrase "Run away. Fall in love. Never return." Thefirm said the Jenners' version, "is likely to cause confusion, mistake and deception among consumers." In January 2015, the parties settled with Island Company receiving an undisclosed sum and Pac Sun removing all remaining product from stores.
In July 2013 Island Company filed a lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch for trademark infringement. It alleged that the retailer used Island Company's trademarked "Quit your job. Buy a ticket. Get a tan. Fall in Love. Never return." mantra.
In mid-December 2015, Island Company filed suit against Cotton On, for their tee shirt "Quit You'r (sic) Job, Buy a Ticket, Travel the World, Fall in Love, Repeat." Island Company called Cotton On's grammatically challenged slogan "confusingly similar" to its catchphrase. Island Company asked a federal judge to order Cotton On to destroy the offending garments.
A suit was filed Aug. 31, 2017 in U.S. District Court by Island Company against Free People. The suit alleged that Island Company's trademark was infringed on by a similar logo "Buy A Ticket, Tune In, Rock Out, Never Return," used on some merchandise sold by Free People.
Island Company has 7 freestanding, branded retail stores; Naples, Florida, Palm Beach, Florida, Cayman Islands and Harbour Island in the Bahamas. In June 2015, it was announced that Island Company would be opening , a 4,000 square foot store at the Ritz-Carlton in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Thefirm sells to over 500 wholesale accounts worldwide. Its products are distributed in the North America, South America, the Caribbean and Europe.
