Lady Manhattan was a division of Manhattan Industries – originally The Manhattan Shirt Company, founded by Lewis Levi in 1857. Abram Leeds, his son, developed the company into one of the nation’s largest shirt producers. The company would come to manufacture brands like Henry Grethel, John Henry, Perry Ellis, and to own Frost Bros. (an upscale men’s boutique). The Lady Manhattan label was first used in 1954 and trademarked in 1956.
Manhattan Industries was family-run until 1988, when Salant Corporation acquired them.
