Since 1871, Zimmerli has manufactured exclusive underwear for connoisseurs of ultimate quality, comfort and well being.

Zimmerli is created from only finest natural fibers available worldwide, handled with utmost care, and combined with finest European trims or laces, to create perfect fit, maximum comfort and refinement.

Zimmerli enjoys a reputation as producer of “the world’s finest underwear”, a distinction the company considers vital to maintain.

Zimmerli is the only company producing underwear in Switzerland, and is committed to this as a core component of it’s brand DNA.

Zimmerli is a celebrity favorite of David Beckham, Jamie Fox, Robert DeNiro, Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner, Hillary Swank, Al Pacino, Denzel Washington, Will Smith and more.

Zimmerli’s incomparable style is achieved through “handmade” qualities - a lost art – and through exquisite ribs and knitting structures of the fabrics. For example, there are 4 knitting machines left in the world to create exclusive rib treatments, and they are owned by Zimmerli.
