We've made it to the Web!

First off, my name is Wayne, and I'd like to welcome you to our new home on the internet. Think of it as your favorite coffee shop or General Store where you can stop in, swap some stories, and learn about the finest clothes for Country Living.

Let me tell you a little about the background of our store. In the late 1800's, Isaac Silverman began his clothing business by going from farm to farm in his wagon, selling bib overalls and other clothing items. In 1898, he dropped the route and built the store here on Main Street in Branchville, NJ. Upon his retirement in 1939, passed the store on to his eldest son, Samuel. As a teenager, I worked for Samuel Silverman in this very store. So when Silverman decided to sell the business in 1976, I bought it and have continued to offer the finest clothing in the area.

We are an authorized retailer for Red Wing Boots, Carhartt & Woolrich clothing. And we also carry Stetson hats, Buck Knife cutlery and leather goods. When you get a chance, I encourage you to stop in to our historic old store, with the thick plank wood floors and the wonderful smell of wool and leather and see what we have to offer. You can even take a peek at some of our things on our Facebook page.

I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have, or offer the advice that comes with almost 50 years in this business - just drop me a line here. And I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by our prices.
