It all started in the early 60's when the increased needs for a proper outfit had passed from Europe to Greece and sur-mesure is now in the life of Greeks. It is the decade when Sotirios Bardakos opens in the center of Piraeus a small studio with sur-mesure men's suit. The clientele begins to be created by him and then well-known world of shipping in the developing Piraeus. Soon, our reputation passes to well-known shipping companies, and thus the idea for the creation of professional clothing is born.
Firstly, the stimuli from trips abroad for the clothing of the workers. Secondly, the needs created through this project, the coming of 1961 brings the flourishing of our involvement in the creation of uniforms for ships. Companies such the Latsis Giannis' company, the municipality of Piraeus, the Municipal Philharmonic, the company Pyrkal, the Hellenic Refineries, and many other companies are among the first that trusted us. And of course always keeping our identity, the company Bardakos continues to keep the sur-mesure for the executives of companies and banks.
Over the years, Adamantia Bardakou was added to the company's staff, who was the one knows so well the women's clothing - and especially the women's sur-mesure - comes to fill the "gap" that existed in other similar clothing companies in the field of professional clothing.
And so our company grows in the Greek market. Clients come like the shipping company Strintzis - which pioneers and agrees with our proposal to change the classic color that prevailed then in shipping from black for winter and white in summer to navy blue for all seasons -, the shipping company Festival , Parnitha casinos, Corfu casino, shipping companies such as New Frontier.
Our course continues upwards, adding to our clientele important collaborations and in this way reaching 1999 comes the 2nd generation of the family.
Andreas Bardakos, who studied in Germany at the Nürnberg Fachschule für das Bekleidungshandwerk in pattern creation and model development, as well as accounting, takes over the helm of the company and a new era begins. Next to him on this trip his sister Jenny Bardakos takes on the role of Development Manager with studies in Business administration at BCA Economic College of Athens and at the National Kapodistrian University of Athens in the departments of Marketing “Communication & customer service" and Shipping “Procurement management ”. Finally, the team is completed with Anna Bardakos with studies in Milan in the field of styling.
More and more names of our domestic and international community are trusting their appearance.
