Farah started as a family business with their factory based in Texas. Mansour Farah and his family started off my making a few shirts under the name 'Farah' in 1920. By the mid 30s the company was growing at an exceptional rate and Mansour started making some denim, overalls and general workwear. Mansour passed away in 1937 and his eldest son James took the reins, and his younger son controlling the production. Farah made its way over to the UK in the 40's and was adopted by The Islington rude boy twins, which paved the way in making it a staple in today's British fashion industry.
