Perry Ellis International reaches agreement to launch Ben Hogan footwear

Perry Ellis International said Thursday that it has entered into a license agreement with ACI International for Ben Hogan men's golf-inspired casual footwear and men's performance golf footwear.

Perry Ellis said the deal expands a strong partnership between the two companies and represents an expansion into a new product line for the Ben Hogan brand. Los Angeles-based ACI International has produced footwear for the Perry Ellis brand, as well as the Original Penguin brand, for years, Perry Ellis said.

The new footwear is scheduled to launch this fall. It will be available at retail and specialty golf stores, where Ben Hogan products are currently sold, Perry Ellis said.
