This is not the time to pretend to be someone that you’re not just because you don’t want to risk losing this person.
If you are not yourself, you will have a very difficult time pretending to be someone that you’re not for the entirety of the relationship.
In 1959 the numbering system changed and began at 13670.
Thus, you can “take a guess” at how old a garment may be by comparing its RN number to 13670.
Well he “used to” open car doors for me and bring me flowers and all of a sudden one day it stopped.
Chemical companies like Du Pont released these marketing names to create incentive for consumers to buy a garment, labels included trade names like “Qiana Nylon” (versus just Nylon) or “Dacron Polyester” (versus just Polyester). 1959 and earlier for numbers listed 00101 to 04086 and post 1959 for numbers listed as 13670 or larger.
WHY IT’S VINTAGE: RN numbers were first used in 1952 and listed from 00101 (first number) to 04086 (last number).
Thus, a ’70s dress may have a RN number closer to 13670 than another ’70s dress of comparable production time. WHY IT’S VINTAGE: Odd number sizes ceased use around the 1980s when the production of separate petite lines began. 1950s is the probable era of a vintage garment that was Made in Mexico.
BEST RULE OF THUMB: I’ve personally decided that RN numbers of 6 digits are from the ’80s or later, while RN numbers of 5 digits are of the ’60s and ’70s. WHY IT’S VINTAGE: Lot numbers were used to process and track garments as they were produced in factories. Odd sizing became more standard for pre-teen and teenage women of modern day — remember the store 5-7-9? WHY IT’S VINTAGE: Although you can certainly buy modern clothing that was made in Mexico, vintage clothing made in Mexico is most likely from the 1950s.
Your search comes up empty, so you turn the garment inside out to look along the side or bottom seam.
