About Bonobos


We are on a mission to make fits and connections that inspire people to be themselves. Our Bonobos menswear brand is known for being a style instigator and offering perfect-fit risks through our innovative retail model and personalized experience. Launched online in 2007 with its signature line of chinos, Bonobos now offers a variety of styles available to order online and to try on at any one of our 60+ Guideshop locations. Our Guideshops are in-real-life stores that deliver one-on-one service and expert fit advice. Don’t think traditional retail, Bonobos is something you haven’t seen before. 


The Bonobos team is vibrant, collaborative, and inclusive. We value self-awareness, empathy, intellectual honesty, positive energy, and judgment, often over experience.
