After a review, it has been determined that Edith A. Miller has earned its stripes.
The decision is based on the following:
Upon arriving at a party wearing the same Robert P. Miller shirt, New Yorkers Jennifer Murray and Nancy Gibson discovered they had both attempted to contact the 106-year-old knitting mill. A partnership formed. (Points for being proactive.)
With no modern contact information to speak of, the collaborators hoofed it to middle-of-nowhere Pennsylvania (technically Mohnton), eventually convincing the sixth generation of military thermal manufacturers to make women’s clothing. (Chutzpah duly noted.)
Using the mill’s all-American ribbed cotton, they avoided shrinking gents’ styles and dutifully designed tanks, short- and long-sleeved tees, rompers, and dresses fit for ladies. (High-five.)
It has come to our attention that there is already a high demand.
In light of this matter, the board would like to request to get in line.
