Hampshire Brands designs and markets men’s sportswear to department stores, chain stores and mass market retailers under licensed brands. It offers a full tops assortment under the Dockers brand. Under its multi-year licensing agreement with Dockers for its men’s good category tops in the United States, it oversees the design, production, sales and distribution of the line to certain chain and department stores including Kohl’s Department Stores, Inc., J.C. Penney Company, Inc. and Sears Holding Corporation. The woven and knit line includes button down shirts, polos, fleece tops and t-shirts.
Rio Garment apparel and knit tops are sold to retailers and distributors, primarily in the United States. Its manufacturing platform primarily supports the vertical specialty store channel, and its manufacturing operations begin with the purchase of fabric and other raw materials from third-party suppliers. The fabrics are ultimately sewn into finished garments at its textile facility or at the facilities of third-party contractors located in Honduras. Rio also purchases yarn and outsources fabric production to third parties where, upon completion, the fabric returns to the Rio facility for production. Its garments may also be embellished and prepared for retail (with any combination of services, including ticketing, hang tags and hangers) by Rio or third-party contractors.
