Hampshire Group, Ltd. has sold its Scott James brand back to its founder, Scott Kuhlman. The sale, terms of which were not disclosed, will allow Hampshire to “devote more resources to its core businesses of Hampshire Brands Menswear and Rio Garment,” the company said Tuesday.
“We are pleased to return the Scott James business back to Scott Kuhlman. He is the founder and creative talent behind the brand and we wish him the best of luck growing the business,” said Paul Buxbaum, chief executive officer of Hampshire. Customers of Scott James “should see no material change in the direction or operations of the brand,” Hampshire said.
