Incotex is part of the Slowear group, an Italian company dedicated to producing exception clothes that are always in style. Everything about the company clearly shows that it finds the idea of ï¿½fashionï¿½ very unfashionable. Slowear, and its companies, make clothes that last and will always be at the front of your wardrobe.
Slowear actually began its life as Carlo Compagno Confezioni in 1951, manufacturing trousers and uniforms. In the 1970s, the company shifted gears, began focusing exclusively on pants and was renamed Incotex.
At the beginning of the 1980s, the company was transformed into an industrial reality with the entry of Compagno's sons, Marzio and Roberto to the family business.
Over the next several years, strategic acquisitions brought into the fold coat company Motedoro, wool producer Maglifico Zanone, and luxury shirt maker Glanshirt. Earlier this year, the umbrella company was renamed Slowear.
Each brand within Slowear operates independently but now benefits from a unified parent brand and a common operations platform. Nonetheless, the main focus of each unit is to carefully design and produce clothes that exist far above and beyond those churned out by name brand designers season after season. Though located in the city, Slowear even located its offices far from the hubbub of Milanï¿½s fashion district.
