S. Cohen was founded 90 years and four generations ago by Benjamin Cohen, who emigrated from Russia in the early 1900's. His son Saul helped him start the business and guided it through the turbulent 30's and 40's. Saul's son David joined the firm in 1953, and under his management it flourished, becoming a key supplier of tailored clothing to major and independent retailers. David's sons Benjamin and Peter began working at the company in the 70's and are the current co-presidents. Over the last two decades S. Cohen has experienced a period of rapid expansion, entering new markets and redefining expectations of what tailored clothing can offer.

A pioneer in high-performance clothing, S. Cohen has received more extensive media coverage for its garments than any comparable clothing firm. NBC Dateline, Newsweek, and many others have covered its unique products. Exclusive features such as Stretch Guard panels and Performa-Stretch waistbands provide exceptional comfort. The company's commitment is to deliver each garment with features that provide significant benefits to the customer.
