Hampshire Group, Limited, a leading provider of sportswear, announced that the Company has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with OneAgency, part of The Trimera Group, to distribute men’s sportswear under the scott james brand throughout Canada.

"As we enter the next phase of growth for the scott james brand, we are delighted to partner with the OneAgency team, backed by Trimera, to expand into the Canadian market,” said Heath L. Golden, President and CEO of Hampshire Group.

"Their knowledge, extensive network of clients and well-established track record of distributing great brands in this market will be extremely valuable to us in expanding our contemporary menswear brand, scott james.”

“scott james is unique in its approach to men’s sportswear, with its European flair for combining high-quality fabric and fit with affordable style,” commented Rosa Costa, President of OneAgency. “We know this brand fills a void in our marketplace and we are more than excited to collaborate with the Hampshire Group on this new venture.”

Debuting in September, the new boys collection includes knits, bottoms, sweaters and outerwear and will reflect the brand’s unique aesthetic infusing pops of color with contemporary design elements.

Mr. Golden continued, “Combined, these initiatives represent an important next step in the evolution of the scott james brand. Looking ahead, we see tremendous opportunity to continue to build on the heritage of the brand and extend its reach into additional product categories and geographies.”
