I also learned that Velva Sheen was bought out by Brazos in 1994, despite their predictions of 10% annual growth in the previous article. Brazos also bought up another vintage favorite,

Here's an interesting article I found on Google Books:

I also learned that Velva Sheen was bought out by Brazos in 1994, despite their predictions of 10% annual growth in the previous article. Brazos also bought up another vintage favorite, Gulf Coast Sportswear in the 90s. Brazos filed Chapter 11 in 1999.

Gotta love the internet! There is some anthropology and sociology to this vintage business, no?
Funny you mention that! My husband asked me recently how I can about t-shirts with no date and explained how most t-shirts were mostly made in the US until the very early 90s and how the change of "made in [insert country here]" on the labels coincided with NAFTA.

I also went into stitching and fit, but he was fascinated how t-shirts had 6 degrees of separation from politics.
