Dang!! That casio watch was showing. LOL   Must find something more retro.
 
Thanks for the comment on the jacket, it is opening up a bit now since I got it from Mr Randal recently, NWOT.
 
I think it is actually is starting to look like an old jacket now.  So how did LVC do that?

Now I know what all those funny letters are on my  vintage bandanna - ranch brands.
I told some one here in the UK that they were Indian markings, doh!

The Elephant Brand was a NYC based company that sorta disappeared in the 70's they basically did all the discharge printing for bandanas. There are a few more companies (factories) but there isn't much information on them because they didn't use a specific logo or brand name. I am doing research part time in tracking down and trying to put a history of the bandana together. Needless to say it is really complicated.  Red bandanas were the first color, then came the synthesized indigo (blue) color.

Yeah they would use those discharge print presses on a sheet of 4 bandannas. I want to see one of these old presses with my own eyes to see how they used to work.
