A comprehensive resource of defunct t-shirt labels manufactured prior to the year 2000.
Brand #17: Signal
Circulation: Fairly Common
Information: In its formative years Signal Knitwear Co. was a manufacturer of textiles and eventually focused on underwear for men and boys. In the 1970s their blank tees caught on with screen printers and by the 1980s were commonly used by the music industry. Signal offered basic, ringer and sleeveless tees but was better known as one of the two most popular makers of rock jersey (the other most notable being The Knits.) In 1991 Signal merged with another brand known as Shirt Shed Inc (SSI) and apparently is still operating as Signal Apparel Company. Not much else is known.
