Jackman was established in Fukui, Japan, drawing on inspiration from Mitsugu Tanabe - founder of the baseball stocking company, Tanabe Meriyasu. Tanabe's passion for American baseball
drove him to produce stockings harnessing his innate creativity whilst keeping the production strictly in the U.S and Japan. The name of the brand Jackman originates from the baseball term "Jack" which refers to a game-ending home run.
Jackman aims to create long-lasting, beloved products that will service their customers for a long time to come.
