    1910s Munson Acorn Brand lawn cotton blouse

    Men's 40s - mid 50s, going by style of collar, early Rockabilly look, and extremely sparse similar examples. "Casuals" by Stetson - very cool find with Waldes zipper up the front and on the pocket. I found it very difficult to find similar examples of older Stetson clothing!

    Tori Top Honolulu label found in a perfectly square (22” x 22”) top which pulls over the head made with a Japanese influenced fabric. It is one of two purchased by my aunt in 1959 when she visited to celebrate Hawaii entering the Union. The top was made in Japan. There are also care instructions but the fabric is not provided. It is not silk from the feel.

    The label is interesting as the Ts resemble the design of the top. Linn directed me to the Tori Richard information https://vintagefashionguild.org/label-resource/richard-tori/

    @Maddy95 - please check your VFG inbox. I sent you a PM.

    It's so great that there is a place to submit these and add to the understanding of the history.

    This is a 1953 ladies sport jacket made by Gateway Modes "made in California", which was a brand that seemed to cater towards college aged women. I found the exact ad (enclosed below) for the jacket in Capwell's department store.

    "Tailored to a fare-thee-well to be a knockout, styled in Julliard's marvelous all-wool flannel, buttoned with big mother-of-pearl buttons...the casual jacket of the season. Note the double-breasted styling, the hand-picked edges. Fully lined, of course. Better than anything with a pleated skirt...just as good with flared or slim skirts. Perfect with slacks. Sizes 10 to 18. $25.00."

    I also enclosed the union label because that was a major confusion for me due to the vague range of dates it could have been made during.

    I did some more diving into who created this brand. Based off of this article, Oxnard graduates Johnnie and George Murr of San Francisco were selling their ready-to-wear "popular" priced separates and suits for women at the Oxnard department store during the 1940s and 1950s.
    I enclosed a photo of the jacket and me wearing it too.

    I'd like to be created with my username and instagram @big.hat.love

    Thanks :)

    I think I dated this to the 1970s - a hooded rain cape by Aqua Sheen. It's a company that was around for quite awhile - maybe still is, but the newer tags seem to have a seal between Aqua and Sheen.

    I don't believe you have this Waltah Clark's label- it's slightly different than the 60's one you have
    It has the "all ovah"
    So I'm guessing this dress is late 50's early 60's

    Thanks, Eel! This is indeed the time-frame when they were greatly expanding in the mainland. I love the "all ovah"!

    Since we do not have this yet, I think it would be good to have this as well...

    H&M - from a synthetic off-the-shoulder sweater, purchased somewhere between 2002 and 2005. The Impuls line was not in use anymore when these more modern H&M labels came into use.

    H&M - Impuls was one of their lines that was around from the mid to late 90s.
    From a waistcoat bough in the late 90s. Unfortunately I have only the label image that I kept, but I had this waistcoat for over 20 years in my closet... it had dark gray wool pinstripe front and synthetic satin back, cut like a classic men's waistcoat.


    H&M stands for Hennes & Mauritz and is a worldwide operating fashion company based in Stockholm, Sweden. They are known for inexpensive, fashion-conscious clothes which are mostly produced in low-wage countries and turned over quickly, with regularly changing collections. It's founder, Erling Persson, returned from a trip to the United States after World War II, where he had been impressed by large stores, and had the idea of opening his own fashion store. In 1947, the first "Hennes" store for ladies wear opened in Västeras, Sweden. Hennes means "hers" or "for her" in Swedish. In 1968, Hennes took over Mauritz Windforss, which dealt in hunting gear, thus adding mens and childrens wear to their range and changing the name to Hennes & Mauritz. In the 1970s, this was changed to H&M. Expansion to other European countries started with Norway in 1964, the UK in 1976 and Germany in 1980. The 1980s and 90s saw further expansion within Europe and the first H&M store in the United States opened in 2000. In 2004, the first designer collaboration, with Karl Lagerfeld, was produced.
    Other fashion brands, which operate separate stores but are owned by H&M are COS, Monki, Cheap Monday, Weekday, & other stories.

    I have a date correction for a label as well. Album by Kenzo, started in 1984. It's currently attributed to the 70's in the resource. Source: https://www.nytimes.com/1984/08/14/style/kenzo-to-do-inexpensive-line.html

    This is great info. Edited in the LR - thank you, Justine!

    I think it was a denim skirt if I remember correctly. THANK YOU for all your work. :)
