The Evolution of the Hart Schaffner Marx Logo

In a few days, everyone will be dressed to the nines, holding a glass of champagne and ringing in the New Year. We will make pledges and resolutions for 2013, and become  nostalgic and like to take a look back at what has occurred over the past year and what made 2012 a great one.

To celebrate the new year and the new logo of Hart Schaffner Marx we decided to take a look at the evolution of our logos from the beginning of this American brand to today. More pictures after the jump.

Featuring patch pockets with flaps, there’s no better tweed jacket for fall. Available at hartschaffnermarx.com.


suede panel sweaterThe Hickey Freeman Sterling Collection Slim Cardigan features suede panels on the front and fine merino wool elsewhere, with a herringbone effect on the shawl collar.
