Being one of the oldest companies in Scandinavia is not the only reason you should think about buying some Stenströms goodies. They happen to manufacture very high-quality shirts that balance between elegance and understatement, the perfect formula for this summer.
Established before the 20th century, Stenströms are in a league of their own of brands. Still to this day, family run and operating out of the same factory, they have established a history that most brands can only dream of.
Swedish tailor August Stenström opened up a shop in Helsingborg in the 1880s in the south of Sweden. He quickly built up a great reputation for producing the highest quality shirts in the land, officially founding Stenströms as a professional shirtmaker in 1899.
His business flourished and word spread very fast. Sea captains who sailed the that sailed through the harbour of Helsingborg became valuable clientele. They would return to their home countries dressed in Stenströms’ elegant outfits, catching the attention of stylish folk seeking beautifully crafted shirts, made from the finest fabrics. These sea captains at the time, unknowingly bolstered Stenströms’ reach from being a small local vendor to a global exporter of premium shirts.
