Today’s trend can be tomorrow’s fashion “road-kill.” Just ask investors in Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF ) how sales are doing these days.

Therefore, when a clothing company has a streak of growing dividends nearly 50-years long, we should take notice.

Multi-brand clothing firm VF Corporation (VFC ) is almost there, and has thrived in the notoriously fickle apparel industry. Offering a stable of brands including a few with billion dollar sales numbers, VFC has the goods to keep on paying that dividend for years to come.

They also happen to all be owned by VFC – and are billion dollar revenue generators for the company.

This is how VFC is a major winner in the industry today – branding.
