Elder Shirt Lofts
The Elder Shirt Lofts building was built in 1906 by shirt manufacturer Ferguson-McKinney, which then sold it to ambitious shirt salesman J.G. “Jack” Rowan in 1916. Rowan founded Elder Shirt Manufacturing, which for decades made little boys' short pants in St. Louis, selling them under the El Dorado and Tom Sawyer labels.
For many years Elder Shirt Company was a vital part of the Washington Avenue Garment District. Today, the property features secure underground parking, gas fireplaces in many units, huge windows, stainless appliances and natural oak ceilings.
Located just a half block North of Washington Avenue and one block from the Square St. Louis headquarters, it offers the convenience of location and a true industrial loft experience.
Elder Shirt Lofts afford residents the convenience of being near Washington Avenue with easy access to restaurants, bars and sporting venues. Put this cool loft building on your must see list!
