About this title
Vintage clothing is a part of our style history, is an acceptable way to individualize the way we dress, and is an increasingly popular way to "go green." This reference book is an easy-to-use compilation of information for dating menswear garments using label information, textiles, styles, and other available information. It is ideal for new converts to vintage and seasoned collectors of men's and women's garments. This liberally illustrated guide, featuring labels, images from catalogs and magazines, and actual garments, is equally helpful for fashion designers, costume designers, and curators. It covers the U.S. Government regulations for manufactured clothing, garment Union information, and menswear clothing by categories and decade. In addition, this unique book presents exclusive data on ACWA Union labels and a never before seen list of denim manufacturers. Anyone with an interest in collecting, dating, and caring for vintage clothing will find this book an indispensable reference.About the Author:
Sue Nightingale is an avid vintage clothing collector and researcher who has developed vintage clothing dating techniques that are the basis for this guide.
