Re: Towncraft JC Penney Label

1964-1971 are supposedly the years the "atomic p" was used. Much of dating Pennys stuff can be done by how they wrote Pennys. All caps Penny's with apostrophe is pre 1963. atomic p until 1971, that's when they added the JC back to it. So, if it has JCPenny, it's post 1971. (disclaimer: I'm basically...

Loving this label. Not sure it's actually related to Sportswear though (this label says Gastonia N.C. on back).

MAD MEN

We never really added the tag words MAD MEN to many of our midcentury style clothing, but one we had tagged that just got removed for a policy violation. Just a heads up.

Re: T-shirt Sightseeing in the U.S.

What part of Tennessee? We're in Knoxville. We often let bands crash at our place since we know what it's like to be on the road and not have a place to stay. Hit us up if you're in our area.

Re: Russell Southern Company?

The shirt isn't anything special (unless you're into collecting improper use of apostrophes), but I thought the tag was cool. I was thinking 70s also. The shirt definitely has that 70s feel, but was having trouble finding info on Russell Southern to match that. 100% cotton and measures 19.5" pit to ...

Re: Batman 1966 Tshirt

According to this, the Atomic P and dropped apostrophe dates the shirt to 1971 or before.

Re: Batman 1966 Tshirt

I could be wrong (and probably am), but I thought Penny's only used that style of "P", sometimes referred to as the Atomic P until the mid 70s. Also, I think it was 1970 when they dropped the apostrophe. Would love to learn more about Towncraft though.
