Giordano, International Limited ( ; Sehk - 0709) is a Hong Kong retailer of men's, women's and children's quality apparel founded in 1981 by Jimmy Lai. Giordano, as of January 2008, employs more than 11,000 people and operates 1800 stores worldwide in 40 countries and online through Australia.

As of 1996, Jimmy Lai no longer owns the company and its current Chairman and CEO Peter Lau. Although based in Bermuda the company's principal global operations run out of Hong Kong. The company is Asia-Pacific's most successful retailer and sells its name under the brands of "Giordano", "Giordano Concepts", "Giordano Junior" and "Giordano Ladies". Giordano has been publicly listed since 1991 and since then trades on the Hong Kong stock exchange under the ticker symbol 709.HK.

Giordano has its own manufacturing division where many of its own clothing styles are produced. Giordano also makes basic and practical men's, women's, and children's T-shirts and trousers, especially denims. In comparison, Giordano is very similar to the American based retailer The Gap.
