SWEET-ORR & CO. UNION MADE "Ace of Spades"

More than a decade before SANFORIZED would become synonymous with pre-shrunk garments (not to mention the most excellent Work and Rugged Wear blog), Sweet-Orr & Co. had their own version with the "Ace of Spades" Shrunk overalls, "The Overalls that Don't Shrink".
The Sweet-Orr print ad from 1914 below states "All the shrink has been taken out by a special SWEET ORR process. No matter how often you wash them, SWEET -ORR "Ace of Spades" will never shorten up... not even one-sixteenth of an inch"!
