Forest Mec’s offer revolved around the kind of shirts, jeans and jackets American laborers were wearing. The products were so successful they were even exported to the US. In New York men’s suits were substituted by an outfit of pants and a very stylized shirt in matching fabric. In its search for low-cost labor markets, the company chose China, as it would become an important supply source. In 1964 they opened an office in Hong Kong because the garments manufactured there were accepted by the high-quality standards of the European market.
The company moved its headquarters to Via Arcivescovo Calabiana 6, in Milan.
The new offices, situated in the building of a historical printer of the city, houses the showrooms, the management, sales and design offices, as well as the historical archives of the company.
