Discussion in 'PUBLIC Vintage Label Q & A' started by Mark Thomas, Jul 12, 2019.
Here's a selection of labels from my collection, most Australian. Any information on brands welcome.
Not an expert and so you might know this already -
Bisley is still around, they make work clothes and are very popular for people on the land. Maybe you could find their contact details and email head office for some help with dating labels?
Fletcher Jones is excellent quality, and usually pure wool in women's skirts in my experience. They are also still open so again, you may be able to contact them about dating pieces. There is still a lot of their stuff around, even their old pieces, as it was a hugely popular brand. Quite a bit online about them as David Fletcher Jones was very important in Australian fashion.
Prue Acton is similar in that they made high quality, very popular pieces. To my understanding they often have good resale value.
Other than that, while I recognise other labels I really don't know much about them sorry.
