I found the most peculiar thing when I was at TJ Maxx today. A shirt, striped and with buttondown collar, made by a company called "Jantzen Sportswear." Obviously no relation to the Hong Kong based Jantzen Tailor, but I found it pretty amusing and it made me do a double-take.

Jantzen is a historic brand of swimwear and sportswear.

They did good men's sportswear in the fifties, among other decades.

I asked my mother. She believed that they derived it from their Chinese name, which means something like 'jiffy' or 'quick'.
