Jackman was founded in 1949, by baseball-fanatic Mitsugu Tanabe.

His passion for America’s premier sport-based export drove him to produce the stockings for the fledgling Japanese baseball scene, and it wasn’t long until Mr. Tanabe began producing the Nippon League’s first official uniforms and mitts.

These days, Jackman focus their efforts on making sportswear of all varieties, but their t-shirts have whet our proverbial whistles in ways mere words can’t do justice - hard-wearing jersey fabric… classy, washed-out hues… sleeves… these are the t-shirts all others aspire to be.
