Jackman History
Mitsugu Tanabe - Founder of the TANABE MERIYASU factory, home of the Jackman brand.
lookbook
In 1949, driven by a passion for baseball, visionary Mitsugu Tanabe quit his day job and founded the Tanabe Meriyasu factory in Fukuki, Japan. Inspired by the stockings of visiting American baseball teams in the years following the war, Tanabe began to create baseball stirrup stockings of exceptional quality, even inventing new machines in order to yield a result superior to anything else available. Tanabe Meriyasu soon gained a reputation for quality and craftmanship. The factory went on to supply the official training wears of the 1964 Japanese Olympic team.

The Jackman brand as it exists today is the evolution of Tanabe’s founding vision. Each piece is still crafted in the original factory, and the Jackman offering may of extended far beyond baseball stirrup stockings, but the same commitment to quality that inspired Mitsugu Tanabe remains. We even continue to use the original vintage machines; although the pace is slower than today’s machines, the quality endures.
