Jack Victor Limited’s evolution into a leading North American manufacturer for men’s tailored clothing started in 1913, the year the company was founded. Today the enterprise remains a family-owned business with Alan Victor, CEO, the third generation, following in the footsteps of his father Herschel and his grandfather Jack.

Since its inception, the company has been inspired by the original values of Jack Victor – to excel at product quality and customer service, to provide fashion and superior value, and to maintain the highest standards of integrity.

Designed and produced exclusively in Montreal, Canada, Jack Victor products incorporate the very best fabrics and materials and are available for purchase across the United States and Canada, in Mexico, the United Kingdom, Puerto Rico and Central America.
