The first Hugo Boss workshop was founded in 1924. Following the 1930s and 1940s, the Second World War and Nazi Germany period, Boss began the men’s suits line. With time came better quality for men’s collections, as well as a motorsports line for Formula One racing. Boss then expanded into fragrances, Golf clothing, elegant eyewear, sophisticated footwear, and watches. The first women’s collection was launched in 1998.
