The brand was founded in 1933 by Jankel Grimbert or Grünberg, from a Russian Jewish family who emigrated to France (his six other brothers emigrated to the United States). He opened a shirt shop, initially at 119 rue du Faubourg-du-Temple. Other stores followed in Paris. Jankel Grünberg is deported to Auschwitz. His sons Léon and Albert took over the business when Paris was liberated in August 1944. Then Léon Grimbert's children, Michel and Jean, took over, working together. They turned it into a chic Parisian brand.

Absorbed by the LVMH group's Berluti in 2012, it is a favorite with politicians and other celebrities. François Fillon, Pierre Moscovici, Pierre Bénichou and Serge Moati are just a few examples. The latter adopted the "forest" jacket, in cotton moleskin, lined in yellow and/or red, inspired by jackets worn at the beginning of the xxe century by the gamekeepers of Sologne, a model long considered the paragon of French men's fashion.
