Years before designer names entered the consciousness of the American consumer, Stanley Blacker was doing something unprecedented in the apparel industry. He was sewing his name into sports coats and advertising those sports coats to a national audience.
In doing so Stanley Blacker was among the first to identify – and arguably create – the designer trend as well as to capitalize on this exceptional marketing opportunity.
More than 40 years later, he is still regarded by the consumer as an important American designer. But to the industry insiders who were there, he will always be that savvy manufacturer/designer who recognized with uncanny prescience what would explode into an obsession with designer clothing.
