2019 Best of the Boat men’s clothing store: Allen’s Clothing

Celebrating its 70th anniversary, Allen’s Clothing, which has sewn up Best Men’s Clothing Store for nine years straight, owes much of its success to its four-generation hierarchy.

The company was founded by George Allen and his son Bill in 1949 and is now co-owned by Bill’s son Tod and his wife, Robin, as well as their son Kris. 

“We try to treat everybody the same,” Kris says, adding their product mix caters to what typical Steamboaters wear day in and out, with brands that capture the mountain lifestyle. “They’ve always been our number one customer and are the ones we work and play with. As for our product mix, it’s more of a sportswear than a dressy style — things seem to be getting a little more casual these days.”
