Today's post features some of my favorite labels from the Small Earth Vintage archives. Labels in vintage garments have their own special charm. I always include a label shot--when there is a label--in my item photos, not just to help prove the authenticity of a a garment's designer/era, but because I figure others must love seeing the label as much as I do when I'm shopping.
I've never done this before, so it took a little bit of time, going through four years' worth of sold item photos, and I know these are just a drop in the bucket. These are not the fanciest, big name designer labels. These are labels that I love because they are quirky, have a cool font, or feature a cute animal. Enjoy!
So, apparently, at one time the "Suburbia look" was a thing.
Love Susan Ross's curlicue Ss!
On a men's 1960s sharkskin suit. Pure weirdness.
"washes like a Hanky!" Okay.
Love the font.
Is that Princess Peggy? Is she a real princess? Did she test the fabric herself?
Mr. Mort labels are hands down the coolest.
On a 1950s or 1960s blouse. Perfect label/logo for tweed run folks.
If a garment is made of wool, it is only correct that it should feature an image of the cute animal who was shorn to make it!
What does this say? I have no idea.
