Hello! I've become addicted to vintage clothing, hunting and thrifting for vintage clothes to collect and wear is a new passion of mine. I am diligently educating myself on spotting vintage clothing and becoming pretty good at it but one detail I am confused about... I routinely find clothing advertised as vintage from the 60s/70s but the brand label will say "Made in Hong Kong". From what I gather that term wasn't used until the early 80s as prior it would be stated "British Colony of Hong Kong" or some reference to the British rule. I find a lot of clothing with "Made in Hong Kong" but look to be pre 80s by the style and fabric. I don't doubt that possibly cheaper brands or just some companies simply put "Made in Hong Kong" back in the 60s/70s but I am not sure how common that would be. Is there solid evidence that "Made in Hong Kong" was used prior to the 80s? In the 60s and 70s? Was it rare? Or just not true? and some of the clothing I'm seeing is incorrectly dated? Appreciate anyone's time and knowledge, I am lurking here more than I post, trying to absorb as much knowledge as I can.
