Abraham Weitzenkorn made the long trip from Germany to America at the young age of 19 and started selling clothing from a cart when he arrived. The new business proved to be so successful that he was soon able to open up his own store and in 1864 while Abraham Lincoln was President of The United States Weitzenkorns opened its doors.
Ever since then the store has been family owned and operated. First by our founder Abraham. Then by his son Morris Weitzenkorn. Followed by his grandson Arthur Weitzenkorn who was succeeded by two of his sons Gregg and Marc Weitzenkorn. Today Aaron & Adam Weitzenkorn who are the 5th generation of Weitzenkorn's in the business own and operate the business.
The business has evolved quite a bit since we opened in 1864. Today we shop the best markets around the world in an effort to provide our customers with a uniquely curated assortment of the best the menswear industry has to offer. We hope you enjoy our website and if you are in the area please stop into our store and say hi.
