Nice and salty straight from the Warner bros wardrobe department

gotta love the brand ...perhaps the earliest CPO tag i've ever seen

Warner's storage #

1900's goodyear rubber button 

they were made by the American hard rubber company under contract with the Navy

Nicely faded on the sleeves and shoulders like a good ol' pair of denims 

After the post i've made in june of this year , i've never thought i'll be able to find another example of the first CPO ,but i did this week end .This incredible find was lost in a pile of shirts from the Warner bros studios used as civil war yank's shirts.....

as it was featured on an older post 2 years ago

after 2 years of work ,worn only once a week and washed only twice.....

I never do that, because i'm not into "denim head" forums at all ,but i've decided i could be fun for once to give it a try.... .So here's my modest contribution to the "before and after" kinda post ....
