Private equity firm Monomoy Capital Partners, L.P., parent company of Boston Apparel Group, has acquired direct-to-consumer women’s apparel retailer Casual Living USA. 52% of Casual Living’s sales are through its direct-mail catalogs and 48% come from via its web site.

Monomoy plans to move Casual Living’s fulfillment, marketing, merchandising, and sourcing operations into Boston Apparel’s existing infrastructure in Massachusetts. It will also move the company’s headquarters from Tampa, Fla. to West Bridgewater, Mass.
