Since its establishment in 2001, Peter Millar has grown into a high-end retail brand offering luxury sportswear and tailored clothing perfect for the boardroom or the golf course.

History of the Peter Millar Brand

The first piece of clothing the company made was a cashmere sweater, which came to embody the ethos of sophistication and elegance that is the hallmark of the Peter Millar brand. Over the next ten years, Peter Millar traded hands a few times and eventually came to call Raleigh, NC home with a distribution center in Charlotte, NC.


Peter Millar can now be found virtually anywhere in the world, including North America, Asia, Australia, the South Pacific, and Europe – or right here in Darien, CT!

Where Does the Name Come From?

The company wasn’t named after anyone in particular. Instead, the founders took inspiration from an inscription on an antique lawn bowling ball given to Knott by his mother.

What Peter Millar Is Best Known For

Peter Millar is highly esteemed by athletes – especially golfers – and the business world alike. Peter Millar even sponsors a team of professional golfers on the PGA Tour. However, golfers aren’t the only people who love to wear Peter Millar.


There’s something for people of any age in the Peter Millar collection. All of their clothing is made with the finest materials and the most up-to-date craftsmanship. You can find everything from polos and fitted sportswear to peacoats and golf wear.
