Formerly known as Kuhlman Co. Inc., the men’s wear firm was founded by Scott and Susan Kuhlman in 2002 as a men’s shirt manufacturer. By 2003, the Kuhlmans opened their first store and over the next 18 months built the business to 30 units. The company went public through a reverse merger in 2005 and brought some high-profile, big-box retail executives on board to help it grow even further. The strategy was unsuccessful and, by 2006, Kuhlman was out of money and the business wound down.
