Sweet-orr Overalls had a bunch of 'firsts' including 1st to have a Union Made label,
First to size with inches around waist etc...prior to their change, sizes were in small medium etc..
They had a large very active salesforce that travelled extensively. I learned this from interviewing
the son of one of their main salesmen from the turn of the century period. He also was a salesman for them as a young man and was very proud of what his father had done.

I can imagine quite a few things I'd like to order with this where it able to cross the decades and arrive on my doorstep. Check out the sizing info on the reverse. Cleverly printed with a tape on the edge. This is from my Uncle's old farm on the Texas Gulf Coast.
