Hyde Park will feature clothing, accessories, gifts and home sourced from all over the country. Many of the other pieces and collections will be made from local fashion designers, jewelry makers and furniture designers and other various artists from the Milwaukee area.
Hyde Park will also continue with the tradition of offering tailoring, alterations and dry cleaning, something unique to the area.
Hyde Park MKE has recently morphed from the widely known Hyde Park Tailors and Cleaners. Hugo Weginger started the business in the 1930's and named Hyde Park after the neighborhood in which it is located in Wauwatosa. Many people from around Milwaukee and beyond came to Hyde Park because of its amazing reputation for men's tailoring and custom suits.
Hyde Park Tailors and Cleaners was then bought by Erwin Strigenz and Tony on August 29, 1960. Tony worked until 1980, then Erwin's brother Josef joined working with him in 1981. They have worked side by side for decades, bringing a level of high class in suiting, tailoring and dry cleaning to the Wauwatosa area.
Erwin's daughter Rose worked at the shop as a young girl helping out with the dry cleaning. As of October 1, 2014, her daughter Sydney has taken over the family business.
