The name Bogosse comes from the French term, beau gosse, which is a traditional flattering translation for ‘handsome’. It is often used when recognizing stylish and elegant gentlemen worldwide.
Patrick Tardieu, world-class professional athlete, international business entrepreneur, traveler and connoisseur of the finest clothing designs, founded the company on a strong clear vision he had from a men’s store visit in Paris.
Since its inception in 2004, Bogosse has created a buzz and an undeniable imprint in the world of men’s shirts and fashion. The brand perfectly expresses an European sensibility with a touch of playfulness, projecting an elegant versatility which easily moves from the boardroom to the late-night scene. Bogosse always features the highest quality materials and a sophisticated luxurious look while keeping a fun, comfortable and self-assured image.
Bogosse products are crafted with unique custom European fabrics and prints. Each garment gives a perfect slimming fit complemented by its one-of-a-kind hand-finished stitching and originally crafted new cuffs and collars from one season to the other. Each model offers either an original esthetic detail or a functional element that is guaranteed to draw attention and compliments. The Bogosse Look is Unmistakable.
With updated elements, our shirts have taken on a modern approach to fashion while keeping the ever-so-unique Bogosse touch. We have evolved our collections with sleeker cuffs, brand new buttons, and more youthful collars. Our forte continues to lie in the creative use of eclectic prints and subtle design details that really create a stand-out product in an understated way.
The juxtaposition between simple and complex is the true essence of all Bogosse products. Our shirts feature artistically placed inserts of contrast fabric, diagonal button holes, and updated back yokes that exude modernity and confidence. Our blazer and outerwear collections present a combination of luxurious textiles and meticulous attention to detail. Signature octagonal buttons and boldly colored button hole thread paired with intricately weaved jacquard fabrics add interest to the blazers in an unexpected way.
Our quintessential look remains bold and eye-catching but has acquired a more refined and rejuvenated look.
