Tiger of Sweden is a Stockholm-based fashion house established in 1903 and continues its long path of success till nowadays.
The brand was established by two partners – Marcus Schwartzman and Hjalmar Nordström. Both partners didn’t focus on rich people. Instead, they took the direction to produce suits for men from all walks of life. They made comfort and fashion accessible. Later on, the company started to grow and hired the best tailors to cover the booming demand for their suits.
After some differences over the brand’s direction, the company was ruled only by Marcus Schwartzman. That was a man of big ideas and innovations. He first brought an American car to the small town of Sweden, and always was ahead of the time and demand. In the late 20s, he launched the “Tiger” – a range of suits graded in three levels of fabric quality. It was an instant classic, and to emphasize the success of these suits, the company has changed the name Tiger of Sweden. The new logo was created in 2018 and got its timeless feel. For their new visual identity, designers used an emblem from 1926 and font, which is similar to its 1960’s version. Now, Tiger of Sweden got their way to a future with an homage to their past.
There were many ups and downs. The company passed the World War 2, created the best factory for workers, the machine that measured customers’ body parts for creating bespoke suits, collaborated with famous bands, and last but not least, launched the women collection.
Nowadays, the company operates in Europe, South Africa, and Canada.
