In 1858, Thomas A. Legler of Dayton, Ohio, opened a clothing house specializing in overalls, shirts, and coats for the working man. Undergoing several reorganizations during the second half of the 19th century, the business was finally named Legler, Barlow, & Company, or Legler & Co. for short. The company operated up until the 1910s in the Montgomery County region of Ohio.
