The history of Bertoni is the story of a very dedicated young man who sold his mother’s tobacco shop to follow his passion for clothes by selling menswear from a shop in Aarhus, Denmark, in 1962. His name was Palle Breckling.
Breckling’s trend-spotting skills led to the production of daring new styles. From that point on, designing, tailoring and choosing the right fabrics without compromise gradually refined the quality of the clothing, ultimately achieving the high standards Bertoni represents today.
In the 1980s, all activities were gathered under the Bertoni name, which quickly gained a good reputation. Today, Bertoni has grown into an international fashion company – now run by Palle’s son Klavs Breckling. He also has a heartfelt interest in fashion and continues his father’s strategy of taking the chances he really believes in.
