Company History

   The Southern gentleman and ladies of Nashville enjoyed a lifestyle

around a myriad of social events and they demanded the latest New York

fashions.  Through Zadoc Levy’s entrepreneurial spirit and vision, the

humble shop grew to become a favorite of Nashville elite. By the turn of the

century, Raphael Z. Levy, one of the founder’s sons, took over the family

business, moving the store to Fourth Ave North.  In the 1920’s his sons,

Herbert and Alfred Levy Sr, came to work to continue the iconic family

business, and by the 1940’s, the business passed into the hands of

another generation of Zadoc’s descendants, Ralph Z Levy, Sr. and A. J. Levy Jr.

In 1998, fifth generation owner David W. Levy, Ralph Z. Levy’s son, assumed leadership of the family

business, now located in Green Hills. Under his stewardship, Levy’s has risen to new heights of success,

presenting upscale designer apparel for men and women along with custom tailoring services that stay true

to Levy’s roots. Today, Levy’s is recognized as the oldest men’s clothing store in America and one of the

best in the nation.  Zadoc Levy would surely be proud. His dream lives on, bigger than he could have ever

imagined. After all, that’s the true spirit and nature of the American dream.
