Guess was once only know for manufacturing denim jeans, however today the brand manufactures and licenses all types of men’s and women’s apparel. In 1981, brothers Georges and Maurice Marciano opened a clothing store in Beverly Hills. The Marcianos were originally from Morocco and raised in Marseilles. In 1982 they were joined by additional brothers Paul and Armand who formerly owned a chain of retail clothing stores in France. The merchandise that was sold in the family-owned store included jeans designed by Georges that were named Guess Jeans since the word was easy for the brothers to pronounce. The innovative jeans fit tightly and had zippers at the ankles. They were also stone-washed for a softer feel and lighter color. Georges went to New York in December of 1981 and convinced Bloomingdale’s to display 30 pairs of his designer Guess Jeans for $60 a pair. Within 3 hours every pair was sold.

Guess sells more than just jeans these days with clothing and accessories for the entire family available at their 232 retail stores located all over the world.

Additional stores were also opened in Los Angeles and Toronto that sold sexy and sophisticated attire while Canadians were introduced to a new side of Guess for the older crowd with fancy denim jeans and higher end clothing.

The brand has gone through several changes over the years, including a court battle with competitor brand Jordache. However, despite all the legal distractions they endured in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, the sales for Guess Jeans continued to increase over the years reaching up to $350 million in 1997. Today the brand is still known for their high quality designer jeans as well as stylish attire for men, women and children.

There are times that you should buy at a boutique and there are times that you should just decide to stay away to protect your wallet. The best time to buy at a boutique is when there are sales. Boutiques don’t usually advertise their sales online, but they do post signs on their windows. Therefore, throughout the week, you might want to drive by, you might want to take a peek at their window and see when they’re holding a big sale. An alternative approach to finding out a sale day is to ask the sales clerk. Typically, sales are held at the end of the month or at the end of the season.

Non-High End Boutiques

Another option is to visit boutiques that are not fully high-end. Mid-level boutiques are still boutiques and they offer their patrons some great products. Keep in mind also that the more boutiques in the area, the more competition there is between the boutiques. Therefore, the stores are more likely to keep their prices low and competitive so that customers will choose their stores.

Buy Online

Finally, you could also choose to buy online. Buying at an online boutique usually means that you will save more money. Boutiques are able to keep their prices lower when they sell online because they don’t need to rent space or hire sales staff in order to run their stores. Therefore, if you find a boutique online, you can usually expect their prices to be lower and friendlier for your wallet. You’ll also find that online boutiques are able to sell their products online at sales prices at the end of the season or at the end of the month. To find these sales, simply check up on the online boutique throughout the month.
