History of Outlet location Metzingen

The reputation of Metzingen as an outlet Mecca for premium and luxury brands is inseparably linked to the name and the company Hugo Boss.

Hugo Ferdinand Boss founded a company for workwear and uniforms in Metzingen back in 1924. After the Second World War, the first men's suits were produced, initially to order, before the creation of the BOSS brand in the 1970s turned the clothing factory into an international company for high-quality men's fashion.

At this time the factory outlet of Hugo Boss in Metzingen also started.

After the descendants of the company founder sold their shares in Hugo Boss AG at the beginning of the 1990s, they began to establish further outlets in Metzingen via a new company. The development of the Outletcity Metzingen brand continues to be driven forward by Holy AG and ensures an attractive mix of high-quality brands that make Metzingen an attractive destination for fashion enthusiasts both nationally and internationally. Meanwhile, more than 4 million fashion-loving guests visit the small town at the foot of the Swabian Alb every year. Around 40 percent of the visitors come from all over the world, with the largest visitor groups from China, Korea, Russia and Switzerland.
