National Cloak & Suit was founded about 1888 and was reorganized as the National Bellas Hess Co. Inc. in 1910. At one time National Bellas Hess was one of the top five mail order companies in the country. In the 1960s. the company generated sales of over $250-million a year with 25 million catalogues mailed annually. Bellas Hess survived until the late 1970s.

In a famous 1968 court case, the U.S. Supreme Court decided in the company's favor against the state of Illinois. This landmark case stated that Illinois could not cause Bellas Hess to collect taxes on sales in the state unless they had a "nexus" (physical presence) in the state.
