As the only American brand on the list of the top 10 most expensive clothing brands of 2013, Guess is famous for its denim jeans. Founded in 1981 in Los Angeles, California, Guess stores typically target adults and women. In addition to clothing, Guess stores sell watches, jewelry and perfumes. Although suffering a slight downturn in the 1980′s due to the rising prominence of other companies like Calvin Klein, Diesel and Gap, Guess has revamped their brand with a new approach in the 2000′s, reasserting its place in the top clothing stores. Revenue for Guess is around $1.2 billion and continues to increase.
