Why does Hollister have the year 1922 on the clothes that were made now?


Question Posted Saturday September 6 2008, 11:03 am

I was reading in a magazine recently that the Abercrombie & Fitch company actually owns Hollister. I like both Abercrombie and Hollister anyway so it wasn't a big deal to me. Anyway, I was thinking about the 1922 year that Hollister puts on their clothes. Does Hollister put 1922 on their clothes because that's the year Abercrombie & Fitch was created and they have to put something about Abercrombie & Fitch on their merchandise because Abercrombie owns Hollister?

I mean, I really love Hollister but 1922 doesn't make sense to me because Hollister clothes are created NOW. I also know that Hollister clothes are stylish now but they probably weren't in 1922.

Any information is appreciated.

a fictional background story created by Mike Jeffries to provide more of an atmosphere for the HCO shopper.
The fictional story states Hollister was founded by J.M. Hollister in 1922 as a pacific merchant shop in SoCal. All of Abercrombie & Fitch Co.'s spin-off brands have an accompanying fictional background.

1922 is the year Hollister company was established. It may not have been a clothing company back then but could have transformed into one. Abercrombie used to be a hunting and fishing store way back when, and now its clothing. something similar is probably with hollister.

1922 is when Hollister was established. Yes, they were created now, but you'll notice numbers on designer clothes, and usually they are the year that the company was established.
