Tommy Hilfiger brand was founded in 1985 by designer Thomas Jacob Hilfiger in New York.
At first Hilfiger offered only a single men's collection under its new brand, but by 1990 the company had grown to the point where it had sales of $25 million and went public in 1991.
After Hilfiger became Menswear Designer of the Year in 1995, he sold his company to investment firm Apax Partners in 2005, but has remained a director of the company, honorary chairman of the board and chief designer to this day. In 2010, Phillips-Van Heusen took over the fashion group.
Under the brands Tommy Hilfiger, Tommy Jeans, Hilfiger Collection, Tommy Hilfiger Tailored and TommyXGigi, Hilfiger now sells clothing, accessories and shoes for men, women and children. There are also glasses, watches, fragrances and furniture with the Hilfiger brand.
Hilfiger is known as a companion to the neat and preppy All-American style and provided a revival of college style.
Due to the popularity of the Tommy Hilfiger brand, a lot of fake Tommy Hilfiger products are offered. This includes of course fake Tommy Hilfiger polo shirts but also all other Hilfiger products are sold as counterfeit products especially in fraudulent fake stores offered.
