About Us

 

Louis Raphael is the home of premium trousers, casual slacks, shorts, jeans, blazers, sport coats, and suit separates in America. We focus on fashion and quality with exceptional value. We interweave American fashion and fit with European styling that creates a classic and sophisticated look for the modern business man that defies time.

It was 1972 when we began designing clothes and creating strong retail partnerships. Since then we’ve grown up and now our clothes can be found in retail shops across the United States. We’re always testing the fabrics of innovation, and continuously searching for that perfect blend of fibers that make your body and eyes say Yes!

2017 marks the 45th anniversary of Louis Raphael, a milestone in the history of menswear.
