Our Store History
Utah Woolen Mills was established in 1905 and has been in the same family ever since.
Henry and Bryant Stringham picked things up in 1905 and focused on the mill and taking UWM nation wide. At one point there were over 450 traveling salesmen and women traveling all over the country selling UWM’s goods.
Bry Jr. Stringham – Bryant’s son was next to take the reigns and focused on the retail side of things. Keeping Salt Lake’s downtown as home base, he began the retail store and tailoring shop that specialized in custom clothing.
Bart Stringham, current Chairman and Bry’s son – took the retail shop to the next level introducing brands like Brioni and Oxxford to Utah. His dream was to put UWM on the map as a premier clothing store. With quality being the upmost important, he had never deviated from that.
BJ Stringham (President) & Brandon Stringham (CFO) – have continued to build on what bart built – taking things to an even higher level of prestige. Bringing brands like Kiton, Isaia, Eton among others and being nationally recognized as one of the best stores in the country. BJ and Brandon search the world over to find the best that money can buy and hands can make. Luxury, beauty and style is what they are determined to bring to Salt Lake City
Utah Woolen Mills is a unique place where you will be remembered and cherished as a customer and friend. Not many stores in the country have 3rd or 4th generation customers. We are proud of our past and look forward to the future!
