For more than a century, Wein’s Men’s Store has been outfitting men in the Mining City



Butte, Montana – Since 1906, a business located on Park Street in Uptown Butte’s historic district has been outfitting men in Southwest Montana for special occasions such as weddings and funerals.

“We’ve played a very important historical role within our community,” says Samantha Hackman of Wein’s Men’s Store.

Since its founding in Uptown Butte, Wein’s Men’s Store has only moved three times, but its goal hasn’t changed.

“I like to think of all the important events that happen — weddings, interviews, funerals, business meetings—and a lot of the men, we have probably dressed,” says Hackman.

The details are what count when designing a look for a client.

“It takes a lot of attention to detail to ensure the proper fit and we take a lot of pride in how we fit our customers,” says Hackman.

Even though a large portion of work in Montana is done outside of an office, Wein’s has managed to remain open for business for more than a century.

“I think if you dress well you get a lot better respect from people. People look at you and they might consider you more of an expert than you are if you look the part,” says Joel Broudy of Wein’s Men’s Store.

Veteran client Kelly Maloney concurs.

“It’s nice to be able to be dressed in something current, because obviously at my age I don’t keep up with current styles. I think people in general treat people that are dressed nice a little better and my wife likes it, so,” says Maloney.

“It is amazing how many people you’ve met over the years and things you’ve taken care of and you see people who have gone on to huge successes and to think you were a part of it in dressing them for what they eventually succeeded in,” says Broudy.

Uptown Butte’s Wein’s Men’s Store can be found at 66 West Park Street.
