CP Company

cp company

CP Company was Established in 1975, but started the year before as Chester Perry by Massimo Osti. The name comes from a cartoon strip called Bristow, Chester Perry being the company main man Bristow worked for.

Issues arose with the name sounding too similar to Fred Perry, and after a court order the name was changed to CP Company.

CP Company’s signature jacket has to be the Mille Miglia. The name comes from the Mille Miglia Vintage Car Race, one of the most prestigious in the world. CP Company sponsored the event in 1988. Massimo had wanted to bring to market a jacket that incorporated goggles into the hood, and with the assistance of Baruffaldi, a world leader in sports optics, they produced the new piece for their 1988 Spring Summer collection.

CP Company have produced over 40,000 garments in its 40 year history and has become a laboratory of research and design. They are continuously experimenting with new manufacturing techniques along with ongoing research into military wear to produce their sportswear and clothing. The Company’s philosophy is function and use.
