Our History 2017-06-21T18:42:44+00:00

Libin’s opened in Kalamazoo in 1953 under the fashion and style eye of Fred Libin, who still owns and is involved in the store more than 60 years later. Fred worked in retail sales in Chicago and Los Angeles before settling in Southwest Michigan and opening the best men’s clothing store in the region.

Libin’s was the first store to move into the Cork Lane Shopping Center in 1954 from a small store on Lovers Lane.  It is the only original store in the shopping plaza.  Libin’s expanded in 1975 and in 1981 to meet the demand from customers, guests and longtime friends.

We have maintained a dedication to selling quality clothing at the best prices while also offering the best customer service. Libin’s loyalty to upscale designers has led customers to develop a long-standing relationship with the retailer and its staff, many who have more than 10- 40  years experience.

Libin’s extensive men’s inventory, women’s clothing options, tuxedo rental and big & tall selection will keep you coming back year after year. We have a variety of clothing that is right for a corporate meeting to a relaxing weekend. Visit us for personalized service from an experienced and professional staff.
