Liza, Thanks so much for info. Once again well done
Not quite sure if it's all that helpful, but it's the best I could do and I appreciate the appreciation, LOL!
I'm not sure about the triangle either... it looks to me too like it could be left out. The ratings on the chart are:
3 = no special care needed
2 = observe certain restrictions (you're righ Liza!)
1= take extra care
0= do not use
I have no suitable vintage garment on hand that I could check right now... most of it is not commercially made, or stored away for summer.
It's from this knitted waistcoat: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/180...0s-wwii-style-80s-blue?ref=shop_home_active_2
Made in Korea but I think it's a british import, a label in front of the care label was cut off so I'm missing some info.
I'm pretty sure it's 80's from the pastel colour and mixed colour yarns, but the brand label itself is a bit more retro - I tend to see the 3D fonts on 70's labels.
Ah yes, menswear. Unless an outfit resembles Thomas Jefferson or John Travolta a la Saturday Night Fever, I am entirely clueless, I'm afraid.
I thought you might be interested to see an early example of the first care symbols on this late 1950's early 1960's german Dirndle dress (not mine): (it also happens to show what must be the earliest logo for Trevira polyester fabric - which was introduced in 1956)
Melanie, it's a long shot, but is there any chance you took a screen grab of those tags? The listing is long gone, of course, and I neglected to grab it myself. Stupid of me. Why is it that everything on the Internet is permanent except the one thing you didn't save? LOL.
@Better Dresses Vintage , That was helpful.
