Hoosier National Guard Shirt
A Hoosier Nat’l Guard Shirt.
Is it really?
First saw it at a vintage clothing show in Indianapolis. A year ago. Liked it immediately. Asked a few questions about it.
I’d met this dealer before. Always had a dog with him. A patient, beautiful animal. A rescued greyhound I think.
He took a long millisecond to choose his answer: complete fabrication, half-lie, enhanced truth.
Finally: “Hoosier National Guard Shirt. Getting hard to find, you know. European collections with money will pay anything for one like this.”
He wanted $150. I paid $35. But it took time.
Genuine Hoosier National Guard Shirt Replica. Circa 1912. (No. 2505). Sort of a military look. No telling what it was really for. Interesting bib, front and back. Probably to wick away sweat. Or just for warmth. Combed cotton, jersey-weight. Ribbed knit cuffs and crew neck. Fit: relaxed. In it, you will feel very relaxed. Some people will say too relaxed. Soon you will know who your real friends are. Imported.
