Linguini and Bob

I found a tiki print shirt at Goodwill yesterday. The label on it is "Linguini and Bob". I've never seen that one before. Is it vintage?


I did some poking around and the trademark was from 1992 until about 1994-5 where it was abandoned. Turns out it was owned by Viewpoint International Inc. which also owned the Tommy Bahama line of clothing as well as a bunch of other "island style" labels. Viewpoint was subsequently purchased by Oxford Industries Inc. right here in Atlanta. Small world.

So still the question remains... Is it vintage?

I remember when 70s became vintage, then 80s, I guess it's 90s turn now. #oldpeopleproblems

"Generally speaking, clothing which was produced before the 1920s is referred to as antique clothing and clothing from the 1920s to 20 years before the present day is considered vintage." From wikipedia

I will put it in the closet next to my vintage Man or Astro-Man? shirts.
