Army Air Corps Logo Shirt

I found this shirt with the Employee Name Badge logo in embroidery on eBay a few years ago and didn’t know what to make of it. My assumption was it’s an employee shirt meant to replace the Guide shirts and vests. Judging by the shirt label this would be late in the safari era. Circa 1988-89, after the catalogues, after the Zieglers left…

Now we can confirm for certain: Grant St. Store Manager Tony Donato remembers this shirt being sold to the general public in the stores after the end of the Ziegler era. It was not an employee shirt.
