RN 18805 ?

Post by rewindtees »

I came across this awesome soft plain blue t-shirt recently. The label says RN 18805... Can anyone accurately date this? I'm thinking 70's, maybe 80s?

Leads back to classtex knitting mills. apparently the pre cursor to tee swing?

I dont have any tee swing tags handy to check if the rns match. will investigate later. But probably the unbranded tag. late 70s Maybe early 80s. Screen Stars went from gen. to branded in 1980.

Thanks, Jimmy! I have a few Tee Swing t-shirts I can check the tag on. I'll see if they match up. Thanks again.

Jimmy, you were right! The blank Tee Swing t-shirts I have, have the same RN 18805 printed on the tag. Thanks again.
