I like redcloud and the VFG label database: http://www.vintagefashionguild.org/labels_f.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

However, use your judgment when dating a garment. Redcloud's dating with regards to some workwear labels is off by as much as 20 years, ditto for VFG.

Perhaps I was a little broad with my statement. I had seen a 40s Penny's garment a few months ago that was identified by Red Cloud as having a 60s label. But other features on the garment conclusively dated it to the 40s.
