V.L.&A. Chicago

The Von Lengerke & Antoinne (V.L. & A.) partnership was formed in 1891, in Chicago, and lasted into the 1920’s. They were in size and scope as Abercombie & Fitch who was their greatest competitor and they both sold the finest product lines to their upscale clientele. In turn, their high-quality leather goods with the V.L. & A. markings were made by such famous makers as H.H. Heiser and George Lawrence, to name a few. V.L. & A. was eventually bought out by Abercombie & Fitch in the 1930’s.
