Brand #2: Hanes

Circulation: Common

Era: 1910-present

Information: A legendary vintage brand that has been in circulation for almost 110 years (and the only label featured in our guide that’s still in production.) In 1901 J. Wesley Hanes founded Shamrock Mills which was originally a manufacturer of men’s hosiery.

In 1910 the company became known as Hanes Knitting and by 1920 they expanded in to “undershirts”. In 1975 Hanes introduced the Beefy-T; In 1980 a separate division was created in the company called Hanes Printables to manufacture and distribute blanks for printing.

The various phases of the tag design above spans from the 1940s to the 1990s.
