Hugo Boss Brand Guide
A History Of Hugo Boss
One of the few remaining true powerhouses of modern day fashion, Hugo Boss has managed to maintain its position as one of the most desirable, sought after and elegant brands in the world by offering constant innovation, whilst always remembering their traditional European styling roots. Not just a fashion brand, Hugo Boss has designed its self to become the ultimate label in representing not only a very specific style that is always on key, but also a lifestyle that will always be lusted after. From clothing, to aftershave and sunglasses, you can complete an entire Hugo Boss look and always represent the brands sleek styling ethos. In 1924, Hugo Ferdinand Boss founded the Hugo Boss brand in his workshop in Metzingen, a small town just south of Stuttgart, Germany. The Hugo Boss group still operates from the same town, although on a hugely altered scale from the original pokey work area of the brands founder- paying homage to their roots as a traditional tailoring brand. After going bankrupt early into his production career due to a notoriously tough pre World War Two economic climate, Hugo Boss managed to salvage six sewing machines from his workshop when his business went under, with which he began rebuilding his dream of the Hugo Boss fashion label. Hugo Boss began to blossom but Hugo Ferdinand Boss died in 1948, but the business that carries his name survived, and grew from strength to strength after the war.
Now an internationally known label, with outlets all over the world, the Hugo Boss label is a mainstay in iconic, timeless fashion with an aesthetic that can’t be rivaled by any other. Always housing an effortless, elegant appeal, their influences from historic European styling result in fantastic quality pieces, with sleek silhouettes and sharp continental shapes.

Popular Boss Orange Clothing
As with a number of designer brands, Boss Orange produce a number of different garments season upon season due to the popularity of the product. The clothing does differ slightly from season to season but the main base of the garment remains the same. The likes of the Boss Orange Pushkyn polo shirt and Boss Orange Pejo polo shirt are so in demand that we regularly have to top up our stock. Similarly the Tedd and Tyll t-shirt in white, grey and black are all some of the top performing products seasonally, with the popularity reflecting the generous price point and designer branding. The popular Boss Orange Keelo trainers are again some of the better selling items that we stock each season. These also will have slightly different features each season but the base model is the same structure.
