Perry Ellis International announced it has entered into a licensing agreement with Smart Apparel U.S. to design, manufacture and distribute a collection of tailored clothing, including men's suits, suit separates and sport jackets, for the U.S. market under the Perry Ellis and Perry Ellis Portfolio brands. This agreement excludes tuxedos.

Oscar Feldenkreis, President and Chief Operating Officer of Perry Ellis International, said, "We are very excited about signing yet another key agreement that complements our Perry Ellis line. Smart Apparel has done a terrific job of interpreting the Perry Ellis lifestyle in dress shirts, and we expect continued success in tailored clothing."

The spring line will be available nationwide in January 2009 at major department stores such as Macy's, Bon-Ton, Belk, Gottschalk's and Dillard's, and at better specialty stores.

"We are very excited about the potential of this enhanced alliance with Perry Ellis," said Michael Surella, President of Smart Apparel U.S. "By blending Perry Ellis' design capabilities with Smart Apparel's manufacturing expertise, we can offer a unique synergy of product to our dress shirt and tailored customers that are certain to exceed their expectations."
