Have a guess, how did the Marciano brothers come up with the name for their brand? They were inspired by a McDonalds advert about cheeseburgers. Not a lie.
Thankfully, following this pearl of wisdom, Guess grew into more glamorous acclaim in the 1980s and became a household name in the denim jeans industry for men and women before branching out into watches, accessories and more general women’s and menswear. Their jeans were popularised in the sci-fi 80s classic Back to the Future and went on to be promoted by some of the catwalk greats – Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova and more.
