Famous Barr T-shirt
For nearly 100 years, St. Louis families shopped at the iconic Famous-Barr department store. The brand, based in St. Louis, was created in 1911 when the William Barr Dry Goods Company merged with the Famous Clothing Store. For decades, Famous-Barr stood for excellence in shopping. Indeed, Famous-Barr was the first air-conditioned department store in the United States. Their French Onion soup is still remembered fondly. The beloved brand lasted until 2006, when most of the locations converted to Macy's department stores.

Love this shirt. When I bought it, they only had brown. The additional colors make it even better. It is nice to remember Famous.
A St. Louis Institution...

Great shirt featuring the classic Famous Barr logo. Soft cotton and great printing of the logo- washes well. Great piece of St. Louis history. Wonderful idea, Bygone Brands!
