JA Apparel, which owns the Joseph Abboud brand, will be moving its midpriced JOE Joseph Abboud line from Macy's to J.C. Penney. The JOE line is more expensive than is typical for J.C. Penney apparel, and the move is part of the retailer's plan to position itself as more upscale than discount stores such as Target and Wal-Mart.
