NEW YORK — A team of investors hopes to get the Mark Cross name back in the saddle again.
The brand — founded in 1845 as a Boston maker of saddles and harnesses — has been off the market since Sara Lee Corp. pulled the plug on it in 1997 in favor of Coach, which the Chicago company then owned. But a team of investors led by accessories executive J.P. Wilkin Jr. acquired the brand last year and is preparing to relaunch it.
