Apparel group Kellwood has sold off its David Brooks and Dotti apparel divisions, according to president and chief executive officer Robert C Skinner Jr.

The sales are part of several restructuring initiatives by the company announced in July.

Kellwood has sold David Brooks to Hampshire Group, Limited, an apparel manufacturer based in Anderson, South Carolina. The core design and sales team that had been responsible for overseeing David Brooks within Kellwood will remain with the business.

The Dotti business was sold to AH Schrieber Co Inc, a swimwear firm based in New York. Key Dotti personnel have joined AH Schrieber to continue to build the brand.

Negotiations are underway to sell the remaining business units outlined in the July announcement.

Kellwood is a marketer of apparel and consumer soft goods with sales in excess of $2 billion.
