    Was telling someone today how at one time in the garment industry how when people left a job how easy it was to get another.It was such a booming industry and how it just faded away to a point that there are people that never even heard of the garment center

      Your comments thrilled me. Everything you said warmed my heart and me feel that all my efforts to create beautiful clothes were appreciated. Jerri Sherman Ltd. was in business for fifteen exciting years from 1981 until 1996. A major goal was to produce clothes that made women feel wonderful and to receive those nice compliments from others. Without knowing the exact blouse to which you refer, please realize that it is atleast sixteen years old, probably older, and I bet it is still in perfect condition.
      Thank you, Jerri Sherman

    any history on a fabric and clothing factory name Brennar & Tanner that was located in the garment district during 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and maybe before? Father-in-law was Foreman.
