Hong Kong-based TAL Group, a private, family-owned firm, is one of the world's largest clothing manufacturers. It produces garments under contract for different brands around the world. It is also thought to be the world's largest dress shirt manufacturer. As well as dress shirts, the company makes trousers, knits and suits. Recently it has entered the made-to-measure business, producing shirts and trousers for key American customers. TAL also makes fabric in the USA for its own use and for sale to other garment manufacturers.
