Zimmerli ... once the favorite of admirers like Mel Gibson, Jennifer Aniston, Prince Charles, Will Smith, Kurt Russell, Keanu Reeves, Sylvester Stallone, and Bill Clinton. The ultimate classic V-neck had a huge celebrity following from Tom Hanks to Tom Cruise.

Zimmerli was known worldwide for creating only the finest available. Formerly owned by the preeminent textile engineer Walter Borner, Zimmerli was recently sold to a cracker baker cum venture capitalist. Could it get worse? The baker hired a watch salesman to run the company. Who needs textile expertise in a clothing company anyway? The iconic Wolverine shirt (left) ... discontinued and replaced by a sad imitation a half-foot shorter.

Zimmerli of Switzerland Underwear was - quite simply - the World's Finest underwear. Nothing came even close. Today however, their offerings, much now made in non-Swiss countries, are primarily aimed at the mass department store market. The "old-world quality" is a thing of bygone days. Take it from me. I wore Zimmerli for more than 30 years. Thankfully, Italy's Bresciani family has stepped in to fill the void and we're still able to offer the finest underwear on the planet. As for our Zimmerli, it's the original stuff. All 27,000 pieces we have in stock as of this writing. All, except for one style of pajamas, arrived here before we received that fateful invoice listing country of origin as "Made in Poland". Given our penchant for quality, that was our last invoice. So ... get it while it lasts or be smart and give the Bresciani underwear a try.

What you see on this page is original Zimmerli from our extensive collection of 'before the change'. Below is the machine knitting the iconic Richelieu "Wolverine Shirt" before the current regieme shortened it by a half-foot and removed the famous lettuce-edge hem.

The ONLY shop - Worldwide - stocking original Zimmerli.

 

Now, here's how this works: We could set up a big , fancy web site - like the big guys. We could carry every brand under the Sun - like the big guys. But we're not the big guys. We're the service-oriented small guys. As explained, we're a Mom & Pop shop ... literally!

That's most of us - Alexander, Damien, Conrad & Daniel - on the right pretending to cut custom shirts. 'twas a while back and Tucker wasn't yet born. After Tucker came along, he found his own niche answering client's e-mails. He's already hard at work. That's him on the left at his workstation.
But if you write or call, rest assured that one of us will be on the other end answering. We're reliably here Monday through Saturday from 7am until 11pm E.S.T. ... although since going online in 2000 we find our work week to be more like 24/7.

We don't have a fancy Flash e-commerce site - we leave that to those who sell hundreds of brands and specialize in none. For us, offering only the best and knowing our merchandise intimately is the most important thing.

That's Alexander on the left and Joelle on the right. After more than  30 years of offering the finest underwear, luxury socks, and more, we'd darn well better know our stuff! If you ever have ordering problems, just fax, e-mail, or call. We'll gladly handle your order for you. Need help with a size question? We're here. Not sure about a color or certain fabric selection? Just holler. We are happy to help.

By the way, what we're most known for is our fine custom shirts ... the 10-15 we've been hand-making each week from wonderful Swiss and Italian high-count cottons since the firm began back in 1937. You may have seen us in Departures magazine, Robb Report's Best of the Best, or one of many others. Shown below are a few of our shirts. We'll leave you with this: Thankfully we're better shirt makers than photographers!
