Logos and Labels
Buttons, Zippers and Rivets
Zippers were used on GWG garments from the 1930s. Rust-proof, nickel Lightning zippers are mentioned by name in the 1963 and 1965 catalogues. Copper rivets with the initials 'GWG' on them were used on the crotch and pockets of Cowboy King jeans until the early 1960s and again on GWGs in the 1980s.
