Goodlyne Dress Company was a Manhattan clothing business which was incorporated in August 1931. It had an initial capital investment of $10,000 and was located at 125 West 45th Street. In January 1934 the firm leased floors in an establishment at 152 - 156 West 25th Street. The corporation was headed by Herman Kleinmetz. The manufacturer is important as one which endured during the Great Depression. The name Goodlyne reappears in New York City in 1951.
