Jeans have become one of the most common components of any person’s wardrobe. They provide a variety of style choices and they are great for so many occasions. What can make for a great pair of blue jeans is largely dependent upon your style preference and what kind of activity you need to dress for. At Buckle, you can find jeans ready to fit every style or activity. The company started out as a mens' clothing store called Mill’s Clothing back in 1948. In the early 1970s, the company took on the name Brass Buckle and started to focus mostly on men’s casual wear and jeans. A few years later, they started to offer casual clothes for women. Later in 1991, they shortened the name to The Buckle and became the store we know today. This company is currently known as one of the country's leading retailers when it comes to stylish casual wear for men and women. They sell their own exclusive brand of jeans along with carrying a wide variety of other popular brands. The store also features tops, non-denim casual bottoms, sportswear, footwear, and outerwear. Along with their wide variety of signature Buckle jeans, they also carry many quality brands such as Affliction, Billabong, Big Star, Vintage, Rock Revival, and Miss Me. Being one of the country's leading clothing stores has lead this company to having over 400 stores in 43 states. For those that can't easily reach a store, Buckle also has an online operation in order to offer quality, fashionable casual clothing to young men and women across America.
