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?
