About Us

Stark & Legum haberdasheries sell iconic brands of men's apparel and designer hats in  Norfolk, Virginia, Established in 1924 as a pawn shop by Marx Stark and Harry Legum, Stark and Legum expanded over the years into a "real" haberdashery offering high-end clothing you won't find in any regular men's store.

Drawing on more than 90 years of experience, we have, and always will, take pride in providing quality apparel and expert personal service. As "The Hat-quarters" for headwear, our professionals offer attentive service ensuring to outfit you from your head to your toes in the proper apparel for any occasion.

Sonny Legum, the son and nephew of the original founders, retired after 65 years as president of the haberdashery. Seeing the potential in Michael J. Benton, his senior manager and buyer, Sonny spent 15 years mentoring him and teaching him the nuances of the business so he could pass on the legacy of serving the well-dressed man. With plans to build on the store's already exquisite selection and taste, Michael Benton, and his brother Dr. Harrison Benton are looking forward to serving the next generation of men looking for excellent service and fine apparel.
