History edit

Perry Ellis International was founded by George Feldenkreis. Feldenkreis was Born in Havana, Cuba and his parents were Russian immigrants. After moving to Miami in 1961, he founded Supreme International. Throughout the 1970's Supreme went international and began selling through mass retailers J.C. Penney and Sears. In 1979 Feldenkreis's son, Oscar Feldenkreis, joined as vice president and a board director. In 1993, Supreme International goes public on NASDAQ stock exchange under the symbol SUPI. SUPI recorded $33M in revenues that previous year. In 1999 Supreme International acquired Perry Ellis and changed its parent company name to Perry Ellis International with the stock ticker PERY.[5] Throughout the 2000's Perry acquired numerous brands and several major Golf brands. Perry now has several major dot com Golf brands and is the licensee for the PGA Tour.[6] Oscar Feldenkreis becomes CEO and President in 2016.
