Founded in Japan in 1949 by baseball-obsessed MITSUGU TANABE, JACKMAN began life as TANABE MERIYASU with just three weft knitting machines.
MITSUGU's love of baseball saw him produce stockings as the scene started to flourish in Japan, before he went on to produce full uniforms and mitts.
JACKMAN peaked in 1964 when they provided training gear for the Japanese National Team at the Tokyo Olympics. It's a standard they have never veered from, with JACKMAN revered in Japan as a brand of genuine heritage.
