Did You Know?

Max Raab was born into the clothing business in the 20s, apprenticing at his father’s side, but later left the business expressing concerns over the quality and lack of style of the garments. He then moved on to making tailored shirts for women, after observing college co-eds opting for men’s shirts on campus. Throughout the 60s he became synonymous with the preppie style with his venture, The Villager clothing company.
The film industry caught his eye and he purchased the rights to A Clockwork Orange and was later named as Executive Producer by Stanley Kubrick. He went on to produce several other notable films before returning to the fashion industry and establishing J. G. Hook in 1974. He grew it into a $100 million company and later sold it.
Fashion moguls can follow many interesting paths on their journey. Who knew a little red coat could have such an exciting history?
