About Wright & Simon...

Dedicated gratefully and with joy to the men of Delaware and its neighbors, Wright & Simon has for over 75 years built an outstanding men’s clothing store on the cornerstone of their principles:

Always serving their customers with integrity

  • Offering only the very best in clothing for men
  • Stressing that good fitting is the first essential to good appearance and makes for maximum customer comfort and satisfaction.

J. Louis Simon, Morris M. Simon, and James H. Wright founded the store in 1935 at 109 West Ninth Street. By 1952, the business was ready for new quarters. The new store, at the present location of 911 North Market Street, was designed as one of the most outstanding stores in the country devoted exclusively to the sale of fine clothing for men. Featuring special emphasis on the comfort and convenience of patrons, the store extends across from Market Street to Shipley Street, with entrances and display windows on both streets. Displays and fitting rooms are on the first floor, with the tailoring and alterations department and the business offices occupying the second floor.

Wright & Simon prides itself on carrying the finest nationally advertised brands of men’s clothing, brands that are America’s classics, the acknowledged leaders – brands such as Hart Schaffner Marx, Hickey Freeman, Forsythe of Canada, H. Freeman of Philadelphia, Jack Victor, Robert Talbott, Bobby Jones, Gitman Shirts, Trafalgar, Pantherella and others. Master tailors, fitters, and alteration experts of high repute and long experience ensure that all work meets the highest expectations of their crafts.

Through the years Wright & Simon has maintained the maximum standards of quality, character and fitting. They look forward to continuing to serve their loyal patrons and also to giving new generations of patrons the pleasant surprise of learning a new concept of satisfaction in clothing purchases, available only where quality, character, and perfect fitting come together.

A note from Leonard Simon...

Welcome to Wright & Simon on the Web. After 68 years as a bricks-and-mortar retailer we created a web site in addition to our store. Our new web site, 2014 edition as we head toward our 80th year in business, gives us a new and more efficient way to reach out to our customers and now sell many of our ready to wear items online. Our site also provides a way for our customers to give us feedback on their wants and desires for fine men’s clothing and furnishings.

Let me know what you think of our site. Let me know how our site can better serve your needs as it grows and evolves.

Sincerely, Leonard Simon
