SCOTT JAMES TO EXPAND INTO CANADA
NEW YORK, September 4th, 2012
Universify, LLC has negotiated and closed a three year license agreement on behalf of the men’s sportswear brand SCOTT JAMES with One Agency, a part of the Trimera Group in Canada, to distribute product lines at wholesale and through in-store concept shops. The luxury menswear products will be available in Canada this spring. Heath Golden, president and chief executive officer of Hampshire Group Limited (Nasdaq:HAMP), the owner of the SCOTT JAMES label said, “Their knowledge, extensive network of clients, as well as established track record of distributing great brands in this market, will be extremely valuable to us”. Sam Wilson, President of Universify added, “We are happy to have been able to connect Scott James with One Agency. Having worked with One Agency for many years, we are confident in its ability to successfully develop the SCOTT JAMES brand throughout the Canadian marketplace.”
Rosa Costa, president of One Agency said “SCOTT JAMES is a wonderful brand that combines a European flair for fabric and fit with affordable style. We are very excited that we will be able to offer these products to fill a void for such menswear offerings in our marketplace”. Golden further added that the new license constitutes a “great opportunity for the brand in Canada”, and he is confident that the brand will be positioned into the best specialty stores in the country.
In addition to Canada, Universify has successfully introduced the SCOTT JAMES brand in Europe, securing prime placement at the last Pitti Uomo menswear show in Florence, Italy, which debuted to great response. SCOTT JAMES is scheduled to open its Milan showroom this Fall. Golden said that in addition to Europe and Canada, the company is targeting Mexico and Australia as regions in which to expand the SCOTT JAMES brand
