White Stag - If it was good enough for Mom- it's good enough for me!
Walmart has one of the best kept secret of women's clothing lurking in their aisles - the White Stag Women's clothing line. Growing up with a mom that religiously bought White Stag clothes, I can remember my mothers steadfast love of the durable - long-lasting clothes that have always been a trademark of the White Stag line.
I remember going shopping with my mom at the Navy PX in the 60's,70's and 80's, where White Stag was a familiar tag in the women's department. My mother would buy several of the blouses or pants that she liked, often in multiple colors and duplicates because she loved the clothes so much. Years later it was quite a surprise to me when I was shopping at a local Walmart and found a rack of White Stag clothing for sale. It had been so many years since I had seen the clothing that I had no idea they were still around. I bought some pants and blouses that day because I liked the styles and the way the clothes fit me. I also felt good that I was carrying on a legacy for smart clothes shopping that my mother would have appreciated.
White Stag - Quality Clothing at a Good Price
Decidedly curious about my new purchases, I decided to check out those first purchases of mine from Walmart and see if the clothing held up the way my mothers used to. After a few washes and wearings I was not disappointed. My White Stag clothing still looked dang good, retaining its color and retaining its shape (as all you ladies know how important that is!) I was happy as a clam to realize that the same White Stag standards that applied to my mothers clothing then still applied to mine today ...White Stag was still a maker of top quality clothes. And honestly to find them at Walmart was really a little shocking - I had always thought of the White Stag line as a little pricey back in the day (they were often found at boutiques and higher priced stores) Upon doing some research though I found out that Walmart acquired the line back in 2003 (smart move on Walmarts part!) and now they are even selling an expanded line of White Stag.
Walmart Sells White Stag Womens's Clothing Today
The other day I went shopping at Walmart for some new spring/summer clothes. And you wanna know the funny part ? Without even realizing it every piece of clothing I bought that day was from the White Stag women's clothing line. For under a $100 it's pretty hard to believe the value I got - 6 cable knit blouses in various colors, 5 casual tops, and 4 tank tops. All mix and match, clothes that I can wear to work as well as everyday.
I would have also bought the adorable dragon fly pants by White Stag too but unfortunately they didn't have my size. And by the way, sizing with White stag is reliable. If you are a size 10, you can pretty much count the clothing to be a true size 10 (not like some manufacturers which sizes can run too small or too large) I was also really impressed with the hot new colors that the new spring/summer line has (dragonflies are in apparently in this season) White Stag woman's clothing tends to be simple clothing, you won't find lots of patterns or jangles but for quality, long lasting clothing you won't be disappointed! I know my mother is smiling down at me for making some wise clothing choices the other day!
What Kind of White Stag Women's Clothing Can I Find Today?
White Stag has a full line of clothing for women (including petite up to plus size) and you can find the following items in their line:
* White Stag Capri's (check out the latest capri's- cuuute!!)
* White Stag Pants (well fitting pants and comfortable!)
* White Stag Blouses (some of my favorites!!)
* White Stag Tank Tops (The ones I bought the other day are cuuute!! Small polka dots with cute colors)
* White Stag Plus Size clothing
* White Stag Petite Size clothing
* White Stag Jackets (very nice - my mom used to wear these a lot!)
* White Stag Shorts
* White Stag Slacks (very comfortable!)
* White Stag Sweaters
* White Stag Jeans (the stretch denim jeans are really nice ones. Very comfortable, my sister in law swears by them and buys them every year at Walmart)
* White Stag Swimwear (check out the cute red one on this page!)
As you can see, White Stag Women's Clothinghas lots of options to choose from, and a price that you can't go wrong on. In this day and age it helps to look backward sometimes to those that were wise shoppers - women like my mom who knew good clothes when she saw them! Happy fun shopping ladies!

It's getting harder to find White Stag clothing, Walmart does not carry what they used to. Will update if I find a good source for this clothing line!
liza on April 14, 2013:
Love White Stag brand, but have been unable as of lately to find any White Stag brand clothing in the Women's Sizes in Walmart. They have some in the ladies sizes but none in Women's. Would love to know where I could purchase Women size White Stag clothing.
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on February 13, 2013:
@Elizabeth) I am not employed by White Stag, just a writer that enjoys the line. Hopefully the people from White Stag are reading this :-)
Elizabeth KREIGHBAUM on February 10, 2013:
Your jeans were much better last year. I enjoyed the elastic just in the back. Your size was more for average people, now all your you XXX sines no more med. Your elastic is now all around not just in the back. I do most of my shopping in Wal Mart. I am upset with the shopping this yeas and I wish you you would go back to do old way you did you made your clothing

@Jane) I haven't tried the new ones. Sorry to hear the quality has declined - I really used to like those denim jeans by White Stag.
jane on May 15, 2012:
The white stage demin pants are a joke. Please go back to the old pants from 3 yrs ago.
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on March 14, 2012:
@Eliza) Thanks for reading. I thought that was a pretty good deal too!

@Janis) Not usually however I did find that my last white stag blouses did shrink quite a bit (but that also could have been my husband washing them in hot water)
Janis on December 21, 2011:
I bought some white stag tops at Walmart for a relative in a nursing. They are sized strangely with large being 12-14. They look large for that size. Do they shrink???
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on November 29, 2011:
J Altus) Try checking out Walmart online.
J Altus@att.net on November 26, 2011:

@Diana) Thanks for reading.I hope Walmart execs are reading this hub.
Diana on November 03, 2011:
I love Wal-Mart i shop there all of the time. I love white stag clothing but they don't have any more. Plese stock up on it or be able to order for customers.
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on September 15, 2011:
@salgal) Yes I noticed the last White Stag blouses I bought were not the same. Looks like they may be cheapening the material. Unfortunate - they used to be a great line of clothing.
salgal8772AOL.COM on September 15, 2011:
THIS IS ALL A BUNCH OF C--P WHITE STAG USED TO BE A WONDERFUL LINE, HEAVY JERSERY TYPE MATERIAL, NOW THE ARE JUST CHEAP TISSUE PAPER!!!!!! WRINKLE WHEN YOU SET DOWN, NEVER BUY wALMART WHITE STAG AGAIN, NOPE NOT ME !!!!
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on August 18, 2011:
@Elaine) I did not even know that White Stag made shoes too! That's great to know. I would try finding them on EBay (or Amazon). Or just google White Stag sandals or shoes.
Elaine on August 16, 2011:
I bought white stag sandals when out on holiday this year and they are the most comfortable, durable I have ever worn. They have been on my feet every day for the last 5 months! I cannot buy them online from the UK and desperately want to get some for my friends and family, HELP!
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on May 19, 2011:
Try searching for White Stag clothes online at the Walmart website Mary (good luck finding those)
Mary Meakin on May 17, 2011:
Cannot find any White Stag blue denim skorts or shorts in low rise with front zipper in 98% cotton & 2% spandex so you have some give in Walmart. Here in Central Florida they carry clothing styles that lean towards the Hispanic women in the area and very few size 8s or 10s of anything. Styles are too girlish and young. Bring back White Stag dark denim skorts low rise in stretchable denim and I will buy a dozen of them. Most of mine are worn out; that is all I wear even to church, very comfortable to wear all day.
mary ellen on May 03, 2011:
bring back White Stag to Walmarts
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on April 26, 2011:
@Ruth) Thanks for reading and I agree!
email@example.com on April 24, 2011:
I also want White Stag--years ago, my Walmart in Jackson, California carried a full line, including dresses. What happened? I think Walmart should at least tell customers what is going on--that would be a simple courtesy.
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on March 21, 2011:
Thanks Jodi for reading. I did find those great jean leggings at the Fremont, Ca. Walmart - but alas NOT in my size. Of course...sigh....
So the good news is that White Stag still makes them and some Walmarts carry them!!!
Jodi on March 20, 2011:
I am along with allof y'all, I loved Whits Stag, I stillhave 4 pair of their crop pants but they are getting worn, 3 -4 yr old!! Still look good but this yr may be the last. WALMART made a hugh mistake when they went to ONLY JMS for women size patrons. IT SUCKS< CHEEEEPPP crap, I hane not bought clothing @ Walmart going on 3 yrs, so they lost my business as far as cloting is concerned. If I find anything thing I will let you all know....jodi
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on March 06, 2011:
@Joy) Me too!
Joy on March 06, 2011:
Bring back white stag plus sizes..we plus size women love them. Great look and wear great..I shop at walmart at least 5 times a week I would like to see white stag back....
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on March 02, 2011:
Harriet) I found similar problems with some White Stag tops I bought last year. They shrank a lot and I was very disappointed. I am worried that perhaps the brand is starting to use cheaper material, and if so, they will lose lots of loyal customers. Let's hope they are listening!
Harrietl on February 26, 2011:
I can be a loyal person when it comes to shopping.White Stag does offer some nice apparel at a reasonable cost. I hate to say this but I'm a bit irritated at them right now. I've bought some really nice looking tops in the past 2 months for work and the material is AWFUL!!The pants catch every bit of lint, the tops are poorly made and will create balls during washing. I've recently taken them to the cleaners and have the same problem. We work too hard for our money and to have this occur is maddening. So until they SHAPE UP--they're shipping out!
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on January 28, 2011:
@Shari) If I find out where to get the White Stag blue jeans I'll post it because I am looking for some too! I love them!!
Shari on January 27, 2011:
I need the White Stag Blue Jeans. They are the only ones that fit me the best. I have no clue why Wal-Mart discontinued them. I haven't been able to find them any place!!! Now what???
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on January 05, 2011:
Bunnie) I agree! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
Bunnie on January 04, 2011:
I have been very disappointed that Walmart has virtually discontinued the White Stag line. I have bought jeans, capris, and shirts there that are stylish. Now, I find very little in White Stag. I need some new jeans and all I can find are leggings. Middle age and older ladies need clothes, too!
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on December 28, 2010:
@baylee) Try searching Walmart online. Good luck.

Anna on November 14, 2010:
I love white stag. I had bought a skirt, actually two in different colors, in 1999 and they still look good. Very durable clothing. I am looking for more of these skirts as I have lost some weight, but don't want to part from them. Most likely they don't make this style anymore, but I am hoping.
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on November 10, 2010:
mhannan) Thanks for stopping by and reading. Have you tried different Walmarts for the White Stag boot cut jeans? Good luck finding them.

Thanks Betty for reading and commenting (and I hope Walmart is "listening" to the readers on this hub)
Betty on October 29, 2010:
I just read that the White Stag name now belongs to Wal-Mart; please go back to those tops and jeans in the large sizes. They fit better and looked better than the JMS you now have. Why would you drop a good line from your inventory.
I also loved the Jerzees cotton or cotton blend fleece. Another favorite I can no longer find at Wal-Mart.
I have to shop elsewhere! Please bring them back.
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on September 23, 2010:
Sandy) I remember Bobbie Brooks too, and my mom used to work for Jantzen back in the 40's, as a seamstress making bathing suits!
Thanks for coming by.
Sandy on September 22, 2010:
My mom and I wore White Stag in the 60's. I am now in my 60's and still love the line.
By the way, Bobbie Brooks can be found at Dollar General. I still like and buy that line, too. I guess it is what you grow up with. I like Jantzen swimwear, too.
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on September 07, 2010:
Dianne) Try Walmart online. Good luck and thanks for coming by and reading.
Dianne on September 06, 2010:
I have been to 3 WALMART's in Minnesota looking for the plus size in White Stag tops that I have bought in the past. Only to find JMS tops instead.The White Stag tops are not in plus sized women's. I'm trying to find out what store I can buy them at now.
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on September 01, 2010:
Annette and Anna) Thanks for coming by and commenting. Good luck on getting those White Stag favorite pieces you are looking for! I like those stretch jeans too and still have my pair from years ago.
Anna on August 24, 2010:

Silvia) I am not affiliated with White Stag - I am a freelance writer who just happened to write on the White Stag clothing line. I'm amazed at how many fans White Stag does have! Have you tried EBay for white stag floral skirts? Maybe you can find some of last years line there.
Sammy) Thanks for reading!
sammy on August 01, 2010:
To susan Kulson, I agree about thw White Stag shorts. Elastic waist, two side pockets and can't find them anywhere11 I only have three pairs. How RUDE of Walmart. I don't know your size, but MY frame does NOT wear jersey!!!
Silvia Brill on August 01, 2010:
I am looking for your floral skirts you had last year at
WallMart, AVON,CT. I LOVE THEM VERY MUCH, Yet this year, there are no skirts from your company!!
Do you have them? can I buy them from you, or other Wallmart?
thanks, and blessings, silvia p.s. I do not know what you are referring to URL!, PLEASE CAN YOU CALL ME?
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on July 09, 2010:
Susan) I bet we have some of the same tops. I get certain ones that I wish I had bought more of. I haven't checked what they have this season - sounds a little disappointing. Hopefully they will bring in more!!
susan kulson on July 09, 2010:
walmart last year carried wonderful White Stag shorts and wonderful colorful tees for women. Not this year and I am so careful that they do not wear out. No shrinkage and no ironing. I wear the cotton elastic and pocketed shorts everyday in Palm Springs 100 degree weather. Help,HELP
HELP HELP I want more and so do your customers.
HELP I read Wal Mart was not doing so well---bring back what is good and what we bought and liked. The cheaper jersey fabric does not make it
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on June 19, 2010:
Carol Mc) Sorry you are having trouble finding those particular shorts. The only advice I can give you is just keep googling and maybe you will find an outlet. The only place I know of that carries White Stag clothing is Walmart, and of course you can find vintage White Stag at EBay and perhaps some new pieces there. Good luck.
Carol Mc on June 15, 2010:
Wal Marts line of what is left of White Stag is a big joke as are the other websites that advertise they have this apparel. I want to know where one can purchase the White Stag Plus Shorts (w/drawstrings, the crinkle material capri's) cause I can't locate on Ebay, amazon, yahoo. or anywhere else Google has sent me. When they took over Bobbie Brooks I was anxious and now I am completely pissed off!
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on April 07, 2010:
Marlene) Go to www.walmart.com and search White Stag. Walmart still carries the line but not at all stores. You can also but white stag clothing online through the Walmart site.
Marlene on April 06, 2010:
Unfortunately Walmart is no longer carrying White Stag.
Does anyone know where else you can purchase this line or how to contact the manufacturer? I can't find any info on the internet for the company so any info would be helpful.
Dorsi Diaz (author) from The San Francisco Bay Area on March 10, 2010:
Thanks Hello Hello for stopping by. Yes, that's a good way to describe White Stag clothing - as "tasteful". My mom had very good taste in clothes so hopefully I've picked up some of her good clothes sense...lol!!
Hello, hello, from London, UK on March 10, 2010:
Thank you for showing these very tasteful clothes. Thank you for your impressive hub.
