                                                                                    1945

 

1945   Many of the products undergo a major design change and some product lines are discontinued.  This also

marks the first year of their trademark chevron design.  It marks the end of the cream/red Rubens line as they move

to a closer to the future look of the products with their trademark chevron (although yet to be trademarked).
