Before Joe Fresh…

Vintage Robert knit polyester shirt

Speaking of Joe Fresh (and Scarborough), I spotted this 1970s knit polyester shirt at the Value Village at Victoria Park and Eglinton last Friday. The label reads “Fahioned Knit By Robert, Distributed By Loblaws, Inc. Canada. So Loblaws was in the fashion game well before Joe Fresh came along.

And it amuses me that the diminutive of Robert is Bob. get it? Bob Loblaw? Is this mic on?
