Dalton

Dalton was a famous American cashmere maker, headquartered in Cleveland and Willoughby, Ohio. The company was founded in 1949 as the Fine Gauge Knitwear Company by Arthur Dery and Maurice Saltzman (who was also the owner of Bobbie Brooks).

They became well known for their high quality cashmere sweaters and they also made coordinating separates such as skirts, slacks, and blouses.

In the 1980s the company became mainly a maker of mid-priced sportswear, with labels such as Dalton Sport (1982), Dalton Studio (1985), and Lady Dalton (1985). The business closed in 1986.
