In 1986, two years after the release of the first Macintosh 128K personal computer, Apple launched The Apple Collection clothing line. It includes T-shirts, oversize hoodies, polo shirts and caps with the brand logo. In addition to clothing, the company sold stationery, household items, sunglasses and even chairs.
The clothing line was released immediately after Apple founder Steve Jobs (known, among other things, for his love of simple blue jeans and black turtlenecks) was fired from the company. Even as the head of the company, Jobs did not even know about this idea.
In the 1980s and 1990s, other IT corporations also produced clothes: for example, Microsoft, IBM, Intel and HP.
