In 1910, Fred Hughes and Leslie Hatcher opened their clothing store in downtown Detroit, and it soon became the top name in gentlemen’s fine apparel. Aside from their stylish suits, Hughes & Hatcher was known for having the largest display windows in town.
The company's slogans included "Everything a Man Will Wear!" and "Detroit's Accepted Style Corner."
Women's clothing was added in 1944.
Later, Hughes & Hatcher expanded into other areas like Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
In the 1950's the company merged with Harry Suffrin to become Hughes-Hatcher-Suffrin.
Eventually controlled by United Department Stores, Inc., the company went out of business in 1983.
