Humble Beginnings

“In 1978, we were just young enough, and just broke enough, to come up with the idea of doing our own store.”

Andrisen Morton History

Craig and Dave became friends in the mid-70s and the rest, as they say, is history.
  • Opened a small store selling high-end men's wear in downtown Denver at 17th and Stout, known at the time as The Wall Street of the West.

  • After eight successful years downtown, a second Andrisen Morton was opened in the Denver Tech Center.

  • Andrisen Morton joins the prestigious Forum Apparel Group, comprised of the best men’s clothing stores in the US.

  • Combined both locations in posh Cherry Creek North, built a beautiful 10,000 square foot landmark store, where we have served customers across the West ever since.

  • After more than a year of planning and months of construction, dramatically expanded, modernized and re-envisioned the existing store, creating an entire new world and shopping experience.

Andrisen Morton Today

Everyday lifestyles
Today, after working together for nearly 40 years, Craig and Dave still operate on the premise of being friends first and business partners second. Don’t be surprised if you make lifelong friends here, too.

Dave Morton

Raised in Boulder, Colorado, Dave Morton’s first jobs included dishwasher, laying asphalt and golf course maintenance at Flatirons Golf Club. Then at 15, he became a stock boy at a local men’s store and found his true calling. But Dave kept working at Flatirons too, and won a prestigious Evans Scholarship to attend University of Colorado, where he studied business. A devoted husband, father and grandfather, family comes first for Dave. To relax, Dave golfs, heads to the mountains and plays his 1970 Martin D28 guitar.

Craig Andrisen

Craig Andrisen has come a long way from his small-town South Dakota upbringing. A University of South Dakota graduate in sociology who also minored in “beer and girls,” Craig has worked outside the clothing industry just once—at a local five-and-dime when he was 14. His next job was at Long’s Menswear in tiny De Smet and he’s been in the business ever since. “I’ve been blessed in life and business,” says Craig. “My only regret is that I haven’t seen Paris—yet.”
