A Rich History
It started with a one-room office and a dream.
J.M. Haggar Senior founded his business in 1926, with a single goal in mind: to provide the working man with quality clothing he could afford. He believed that quality and craftsmanship at affordable prices should be a right, not a privilege.
Today, over 90 years later, his dream has been realized and his vision has stood the test of time. From coining the term ‘slacks’ in 1938, to becoming the maker of the #1 selling casual and dress pant style in America, to outfitting some of the nation’s most skilled athletes; Haggar Clothing Co. has built a legacy on hard work, integrity, innovation and passion.

But beyond our accomplishments, we’ve had the privilege of helping generations of men and women find comfortable, stylish premium clothing they can feel proud wearing and that is the greatest achievement of all.
The Company We Keep
Since 1978, Haggar has been the official provider of the Gold Jacket to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrines; The ‘Official Clothing Partner of the Hockey Hall of Fame’ since 2013 and the ‘Official Partner of the Basketball Hall of Fame’ since 2011.
In 2016, to honour the top 100 players of all times with a commemorative blazer, the Toronto Maple Leafs selected Haggar to design and produce the blazers.
When one is recognized as the best, they are recognized in Haggar.
