Men's neck wear 'novelty' ad, 1887
Contributed by Maine Historical Society
A broadside advertisement announced a "novelty in gentlemen's neck wear" that is something "new, nice and nobby."
Zebulon Harmon of Portland and David Bragden of West Durham invented shirt fronts that reduced the need for clean shirts. Wearers simply replaced the front section of the shirt with the Zylonite insert.
