"The Eton Shirt", as it was launched in 1928, can be traced to a small Swedish kitchen 20 years earlier, where Annie Pettersson began sewing dresses for family and friends.  When the Great Depression forced her husband David to close their sawmill, he joined her growing enterprise, and together they launched Syfabriken Special (Special Sewing Factory). Today, Eton has become one of the most successful shirt makers on the planet. Because of their insistence on quality, consistency, and innovation, Eton's fan base continues to grow.
