  1. Jaeger

    Jaeger is a United Kingdom based high-end fashion brand and retailer of menswear and womenswear formed in 1884 by Lewis Tomalin. As of 2009, Jaeger had more than 90 stores and concessions in the UK and overseas, including a flagship store on London's Regent Street. The brand is named after the German zoologist and physiologist Dr Gustav Jaeger who advocated the benefits of clothing made of animal fibres rather than vegetable fibres. Tomalin translated and published Jaeger's teachings in English. In 1884, Tomalin opened a clothing store in London, named Dr Jaeger's Sanitary Woollen System. The company was acquired by the Coats textile group in 1967. The brand has always been associated with smart classic clothing but by the end of the 1990s the company felt that the brand had a stuffy and old-fashioned image. Coats attempted to rejuvenate the brand in the early 2000s, hiring Bella Freud to design new clothing collections. The rejuvenation had limited success. It did not attract the younger customers as intended and probably alienated Jaeger's existing middle-aged customers. After the ailing fortunes, Coats sold Jaeger for a nominal fee of £1 to entrepreneur Richard Thomson in 2003.
