Silver Jeans Co. is a division of Western Glove Works, a family-owned business that has produced quality denim products for 90 years. After arriving in Canada in the 1870s the first generation Silver family moved from rural Manitoba to Winnipeg in 1921 to purchase a "dry goods" company. Adding manufacturing to the company's capabilities, the Silvers renamed the organization Western Glove Works and began producing denim and leather workwear including dungarees, mackinaw jackets and of course, gloves, for the Canadian workforce. In the 40s, Western Glove Works phased out its glove business but continued to produce denim and workwear.
Since 1921, Western Glove Works has produced over 60 million pairs of jeans and manufactured denim products for many notable brands such as Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Wrangler, Indian Motorcycle, Anna Sui, Victoria Beckham and Sheryl Crow.
