Fall of the House of Worsted-Tex

Ignore the lovely legs of Mary Tyler Moore striding by in the background and pay attention to the name of the menswear provider, which draped the likes of Gavin MacLeod and Ted Knight in spite of the notable handicap of having the most terrible brand name ever.

I don't know if it sounds more like a drunk Texan or just the most objectionable clothes in Texas.

  1. Long time reader, first time commenter. I know that it does sound terrible but actually it means they sell worsted wool clothing. I never did understand why it was called that and having had a formal textile education I still think it should be called bested wool. Oh well, no one asked me. It's actually high quality wool so the name implies they make better to bridge quality merchandise. This would be a good time for an etymology report me thinks.
