Farah Vintage Collection Spring/Summer 2016

Mansour Farah was a student of shirt design and manufacturing in New York City in 1900, setting up a small shirt factory in El Paso’s “Apache Legion.”

Farah diversified into denim workpants when the government began employing convicts to produce work shirts in the 1930’s.

During WWII, Farah temporarily ceased from manufacturing for civilians and produced uniforms for American troops.

After the war, Farah laid increasing emphasis on casualization, which led the brand to be picked up in Britain and, later, by independent musicians, hipsters, mods, skins, sticksmen, and rocker-billys across the UK.
