“The Original Penguin collections will be marketed in department stores including Nordstrom's, Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdale's, The Bay and also specialty stores,” a Perry Ellis press release informed.

"We are delighted to partner with Itochu Prominent, which will allow us to extend the reach of our global portfolio of lifestyle brands," George Feldenkreis, CEO at Perry Ellis International said.

"Our relationship with the Perry Ellis brand in the tailored clothing area has been a very successful one," said Dan Orwig, group president of Itochu Prominent's Men's Division.

“And now we are delighted to now also work with Perry Ellis International on other businesses including Perry Ellis dress shirts, Original Penguin dress shirts and tailored clothing,” Orwig added.

“This move is an exciting complement to our existing men's business, and we are particularly pleased to significantly deepen what has been a very rewarding association with Perry Ellis International,” he noted.
