Looking for Mr. B branded slacks

We had a BrandlandUSA reader looking for the brand name of slacks called "Mr. B."

We looked on Ebay, and there are a few items for sale with the name "Mr. B" of California. We are wondering if this is the same thing?

A Google news search reveals that this brand, Mr. B, sold halter type dresses in California at department stores like Prange's and The Bon. We are told that the Mr. B brand was sold at good boutiques, etc.

Look online at our BrandlandUSA forum to read about it and comment. Click below.

New Pass Grill, FloridaSnapshot

We love the signage at regional restaurants. Here, the "World Famous" New Pass Grill. It has been on City Island in Sarasota since 1929. City Island is the key just south of Longboat Key.

Brand identity comes from the unique contributions of business owners. With time, and generations, brands get more interesting. The New Pass Grill benefits from one of the most expansive, gorgeous views in Sarasota, overlooking New Pass, so that helps alot.
