1940s Reliance Mfg. Co. BIG YANK Herringbone Twill Work Shirt with Cigarette Pocket

Another beautiful Reliance Mfg. Co. BIG YANK work shirt with the iconic cigarette pocket in much favored blue cotton herringbone twill fabric. The unique pyramid top pocket design features a front and back sided pouch sewn on top of the shirt body as opposed to a conventional patch pocket in which a single piece of material is sewn directly on top the shirt body. This pocket is constructed using a single piece of material folded at the bottom to create the pouch which was then stitched along the sides and bar-tack reinforced, hence the lack of stitching on the pocket's bottom. These type of pockets are also referred to as sweat-proof pockets and were used to hold items best kept dry and perspiration free such as a pack of smokes or a pocket watch.

  5. Business owners, especially in a down economy, are so involved in making their numbers, that they probably do not give much thought to asking about business philanthropy. Why is it important? As it does not directly add amounts to the bottom line About Dhirubhai Ambani
