Zooming Along in The Sport Shirt Age


Author(s):
Abstract:
When women stopped wearing full fashioned hosiery in the mid-50s, the future did not look promising for hosiery-maker Eugene Moffitt and the Moffitt Knitting Mills of Asheboro. However, the company began making Banlon sports shirts and prospects improved. The company began in 1946 with one plant covering 6,000-square-feet of floor space and today has four plants with over 25,000-square-feet.
