The official Van Gils story
Van Gils has been an iconic fashion brand for the style-conscious man for over seventy years.
What began as a noble endeavour has grown into a globally popular fashion brand. In 1948, just after the Second World War, Miel van Gils set up his own tailoring shop to provide the people of his village in Brabant with new clothing and an opportunity to work. Through his clothing, Van Gils gave the neat-street scene of that time a casual twist.
To this day, Van Gils' tailored collection is characterised by quality, unique details and a distinctive style. Stemming from the conviction that every man feels confident in a stylish suit, Van Gils offers perfectly cut suits and more at an affordable price.

Corporate Social Responsibility
Van Gils is not only concerned with men's fashion, but also with people and the environment.
- In 2009 all Van Gils suppliers signed a statement in which it was agreed that they would actively participate in the development of Corporate Social Responsibility.
- At present, about 75% of all products are approved by the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative). This organisation is concerned with improving the working conditions within the global production chain.
- Van Gils only enters into new collaborations with suppliers that are SA8000 certified, a worldwide standard in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility, or which have been approved by the BSCI.
At Van Gils, we strive for a sustainable cooperation with all suppliers, and that is why we are affiliated with the BSCI. For more information, visit bsci-intl.org.
