White Stag was originally known as Hirsch-Weis, after its owners Max and Leopold Hirsch and their partner Harry Weis. The Hirsch brothers and Weis began the Willamette Tent and Awning Company, which made canvas materials and, later, clothes for mill and lumber workers. In 1931, Max’s son Harold Hirsch (1908-1990) began a new venture. He had returned to the family business from Dartmouth College, where he was a member of the ski team. Sensing an opportunity, the young Hirsch used a corner of the family factory to make ski apparel. The name he chose was White Stag Sporting Goods, using the English translation of the German names Weis and Hirsch. As outdoor recreation became more popular, White Stag broadened its line to other types of casual sportswear. From 1950 to 1958, sales rose from $4 million to $14 million a year, making it the country's largest retailer of ski clothing. By 1956, when the company went public, the Hirsch-Weis Manufacturing Company was renamed White Stag Sportswear. White Stag was purchased by the Warner Brothers Company in 1966. A former corset and brassiere manufacturer, Warner Brothers had diversified its business in late 1950 to include men’s clothing and sportswear. The company went public in 1961 and renamed itself the Warnaco Group in 1968.
