Cross post from the Ebay thread: I finally put together the guide to BB labels that I've been planning for a while. @Van Veen asked about it, but others may be interested.
How to Thrift: Deciphering Brooks Brothers labels
I need to take the time to do a writeup on BB labels on my blog. I have a bunch of images of the labels saved, and I thought I'd even done a guide to them somewhere, but can't find it now.Meantime, if you post a picture of your label(s), I can probably date them for you.
Looks like 65 or even 60 to me. Nice finds! Whatever the date on that BB, it shows how traditionalist BB was - that lining style was common up through the early 50s, but by the late 50s almost everyone had gone to a half lining in the back.
