Silver Jeans Co.™ is an extension of Western Glove Works, a family-owned business that has produced quality denim products since 1921.
Started by the first generation Silver family to produce leather and denim workwear, Western Glove Works has come a long way since its modest beginnings of Gauntley Gloves,’Treat-em-ruf’ Riders, and Handy Andy Overalls.
After producing private label jeans for many of the top denim companies, Michael Silver recognized a niche in the marketplace for a quality, well-fitting denim brand that could be sold at a competitive price point. He teamed up with denim innovator Allan Kemp, and founded Silver Jeans Co.™. They produced the first silhouette in 1991, a unisex jean called the “Frisco,” which went on to sell 2 million pairs.
