Welcome to Olivers
Olivers’ founder, David Wolfe, comes from a long line of menswear sellers and craftsmen. These hardworking Russian immigrants arrived in the United States at the turn of the century, and made their way West.
Once settled, they put down roots — many, by opening up menswear shops. Throughout the 1900s, members of the Wolfe family were selling clothes as far afield as Brooklyn, Montana, Long Beach and Salt Lake City.
Take Rebecca Cohen, David’s great grandmother. Like so many others in her family, she had multiple connections with the garment trade that shaped her relationships, journey and way of life. Her father and brother ran a menswear shop, in Nevada, and she’d defy convention to work in mens’ stores herself, running independent businesses with both her first and second husbands.
In turn-of-the century America, customers needed clothing that could handle hard work and recreation — and the Wolfe family rose to that challenge.
That’s a sensibility we bring to the Olivers of today. Our modern, premium garments are just as well-crafted and reliable as the ones David’s family reputation was built on.
