Back in 2014, Oxford Industries acquired British apparel brand Ben Sherman for $146 million USD. Now, the company is looking to sell the brand again, after it posted strong fourth-quarter results following a long struggle to return it to profitability. While Ben Sherman has been struggling for a while, unable to achieve an operating profit in either the fourth quarter or all of last year, the company managed to cut its losses by a substantial amount and help the label return to sales growth. Last year, operating losses were reduced to $861,000 USD as opposed to $2.6 million USD the year before, while sales were up 26.6 percent.
