jonab 1,643 Posted February 10, 2019 Author Report Share Posted February 10, 2019 My mother worked at Taylor's on King Edward St. first as a machinist, then a supervisor and eventually as an under-manager The "big-wig" there was named Hinkcliff (sp) and the general manager was named Cook. My cousin, John Griffin (mentioned elsewhere in these pages) was the head designer there until he set up his own business. The Jaeger connection was initially that Jaeger contracted their manufacturing to Taylor's, then they became exclusive Jaeger suppliers and eventually they were bought out. Gustav Jaeger (the founder of the company) was, by all accounts, something of a weirdo. There is something of his history on Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaeger_(clothing) 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
