History: Jaeger was established by British businessman Lewis Tomalin as 'Dr Jaeger's Sanitary Woollen System Co Ltd' in 1884. They began creating wool suits, and by the start of World War I they had cut their associations with Germany and become a British brand. Long johns for British and Commonwealth troops kept the company going during the war, but by the 1920s it had switched to fashion. The company's flagship store opened on Regent Street in the 1930s and attracted a solid clientele who wanted British-made garments. The clothing was modeled by both Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe in the 1950s. And in the 1960's Jaeger began attracting a younger client base, partly due to a revival in British fashion but also because of the influence of Jean Muir.
