Perry Ellis International has announced the appointment of Shayne Industries USA Inc as its men's and young men's outerwear licensee for the Perry Ellis America Collection – a deal which means it now holds the outerwear license for all three Perry Ellis brands.

The new collection will be presented to the trade next month for delivery starting November 1, 2002. It will be distributed in department stores and specialty stores.

"Shayne has done a phenomenal job with Perry Ellis and Perry Ellis Portfolio," said Allan Zwerner, president of Llicensing of PEI. "In just one year, they have made major inroads into a highly competitive category. It was only natural that we would give Shayne the opportunity to achieve the same success in the young men's area with Perry Ellis America."

Russell Fox, president of Shayne, added: "Our first full year has exceeded our expectations. Now, with the addition of the Perry Ellis America label we are looking forward to extending our business to a whole new demographic with a different fashion and attitude."
