Hartmarx Corporation announced that it has reached agreement with Airwair International Limited and R Griggs Group Limited, the holders of the worldwide license for Dr. Martens, to manufacture, market and sell a wide range of men's and women's casual apparel under the Dr. Martens brand.

The Dr. Martens sportswear will be manufactured, marketed and sold by HMX Sportswear Inc, a New York based subsidiary of Hartmarx.

Eric Prengel, Group President of HMX Sportswear, stated, "We are extremely excited to be working with the group at Airwair International on the launch of the Dr. Martens collection.

Our experience with Monarchy, the company we acquired last year, has shown us the tremendous value of a global lifestyle brand that has a unique cultural heritage in contemporary fashion arena.

We believe that the Dr. Martens collection will be very relevant to younger consumer who is looking for both fashion forward style and quality, and is increasingly shopping at specialty chains. We plan to partner with major retailers who understand what a huge opportunity there is in this area."

The Dr. Martens apparel collection will be designed in New York. The launch collection will feature menswear for Fall, 2009 with women's to follow in 2010.

The collection will reflect cutting edge fashion trends for both men and women ranging from sportswear staples such as denim jeans and cotton shirts to sweatshirts and outerwear.
