Wearbest Sil - Tex Mills is the rare American textile manufacturer that has a four generation legacy: Founded in the 1940ís by Philip Gasner and his son Meyer. Third generation Irwin has been President since 1980 with his son Ari joining the family business in October 2009 as Executive Vice President.
After the great Passaic, NJ fire of 1985, we emerged as the industry acknowledges us today "a style and trend leader". This is a well earned reputation as we are the recipients of more Decosit trend awards than any other American mill.
