"December 19, 1973: I only know because our meticulous bookkeeper wrote the date on the back of her copy of the photo. A cold wind blew, which is why so many of us look pained through the smiles. We’d had quite a year: started sewing packs, made the decision to get more seriously into the clothing business, bought the building next door (an abandoned meatpacking plant) and renovated its old wooden-floored exec offices into a proper retail store. We’d gone on a hiring spree, I can tell from this photo, thanks to retail and sewing. You wouldn’t have seen so many women around six months earlier. Of the 25 or so grownups here, 41 years later two still own the company, one serves on the Board, three still work here—25% of the original count. Waddya know." - Vincent Stanley, one of the three who still work here.
