In 1843, our family migrated West to the United States. Saddle-makers from Central Europe, they settled in Texas; and from that first moment in this country, sold items that embodied the West.
The first business was incorporated in 1870 and in 1893 found a longtime home in the growing downtown of Houston, Texas. For over 90 years our family sold clothing, boots, hats, leather goods and more out of that location; but progress slows for no man and in the 1980's the family moved the business West (about 10 miles) to Houston's uptown Galleria-area. After nearly 25 years at that location, the traditional brick-and-mortar store came to an end in 2003 when the State of Texas used eminent domain and took our property to expand a freeway. For the last 12 years, the family business has operated as a licensed retail boutique inside Intercontinental Airport Houston.
That chapter came to an end in early 2015 allowing us to take a step back and rethink how "Western" fashion should be presented to the customer (you!). Through all the change over the last 172 years, the West as a way of life has endured. Now the legend continues with Forever West, a fresh perspective on the fashion of the West. A collection of classic and vintage styles blended with modern and trendy looks.
