Our story began in 1899 when the Swedish tailor August Stenström found himself overwhelmed with orders. His reputation as an outstanding shirt fashioner had spread in town. All the elegantly dressed men in Helsingborg wanted one of his masterpieces, and Stenström found it hard to keep up. To meet the needs of his sophisticated clients, he decided to build a shirt factory. Under Stenströms’ strict supervision, a larger number of quality shirts could now be produced.
With time, his business flourished, and word spread far and wide. More people discovered Stenströms’ garments, e.g. many of the well-travelled and demanding sea captains that sailed through the harbor of Helsingborg. Returning to their home countries dressed in Stenströms’ elegant outfits, they unknowingly helped him become a global exporter.
Still today Stenströms is internationally renowned for its pristine quality. Using only the best fabrics and trims, we craft classic and contemporary clothing. The perfect fit and feel based on 120 years of sustainable craftsmanship.
