Our Heritage

Stein’s is named after Stein’s America’s Greatest Clothiers, which was founded by Jason’s great-grandfather, Joseph, after immigrating to the U.S. to escape the post World War One pogroms in Eastern Europe. Stein’s became one of the largest menswear retailers in America, with 91 stores, before being acquired by Richman Brothers in 1959. As you can imagine, the name has particular significance to both Jason and Alyson.
