The brand started as a single tailoring shop in Turkey in 1944, and has since grown to a global operation that's sold in 49 countries on five continents. It's gained in popularity over the years, thanks to an adherence to modern styles; the current selection includes slim-fit suits, sport coats and oxford shirts in bold colors, as well as fashion-forward outerwear such as velvet pea coats. To complete your wardrobe, Sarar offers shoes, ties, and other formalwear accessories, including diamond-encrusted burger spatulas.
