Hampshire's owned brands include Spring+Mercer, its “better” apparel line, Designers Originals, Hampshire's first brand and still a top-seller in department stores, as well as Mercer Street Studio, Requirements, and RQT. Hampshire also licenses the Geoffrey Beene and Dockers labels for men's sweaters, both of which are market leaders in their categories, and licenses JOE Joseph Abboud for men's sportswear and Alexander Julian Colours for men's tops.
