    Does anyone know when this company was in business? I've done some research on the www finding only some information about them prior to WWII. Tomasso found a beginning date of 1896 for another thread. A "went out of business date" (if there is one) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    The makers tag, if that would help.

    Hi

    It does look like they were in business in 1921:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130207765068

    1921 AD FOR E.V. PRICE & CO. - CHICAGO MEN'S CLOTHIERS

    ...and also in 1939:

    I also found a mention of the company in some kind of archive:

    http://www.library.illinois.edu/archives/uasfa/0101010.pdf

    E. V. Price and Company and Board of Trustees
    ROTC uniforms contract and bond for 1939-40 (ROTC uniforms to be furnished for
    advanced course students) bond for $5,000

    Hope this helps a little.

    cheers

    joe
