PEI Licensing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Perry Ellis International, announced that it has entered into a license agreement with Bioworld Merchandising Inc., granting rights for Ben Hogan men's and women's hats and sports bags.
"An industry leader in accessory manufacturing, we feel Bioworld Merchandising is the perfect partner for bringing the Ben Hogan brand's high-performance standards and off-the-fairway aesthetic to life through these exciting product extensions," said Oscar Feldenkreis, vice chairman, president and chief operating officer for Perry Ellis International. "We are thrilled with this agreement and the potential it brings to both our companies."

Bioworld has strong relationships with major retailers and has a keen ability to spot potentially prosperous partnerships with key licensed brands, such as this new agreement with Ben Hogan golf apparel.
"At Bioworld, we are strategic about our brand partnerships. Ben Hogan is a perfect fit as it reveals our expertise in the athletic performance headwear arena. We are confident the consumers will respond favorably, and look forward to working with Perry Ellis International on this exciting initiative," commented Beth Taylor, director of Licensing and New Business Development, on the newly-inked agreement.
