Disc Recording - Gloweave, Thoughts on Christmas, 1960s Reg. No: HT 7382
- 45 rpm disc recording produced by Melbourne men's clothing manufacturer Gloweave as a Christmas gift to staff at their retail outlets in the early 1960s. It contains a Christmas message from Graham Kennedy, as well as a Christmas story recited by Digby Wolfe, as well as a piece of music entitled `Love Him', by the Bruce Clarke Orchestra.
The Melbourne-based company was established in 1944 under the name Comfort Shirt and Underclothing Manufacturing Company and originally made military shirts and undergarmets. In 1950 Saul Same changed the organisation's focus by designing shirts that were more stylish and fashionable and the business soon became a well-respected menswear retailer. Four years later the company changed its name to Gloweave, the nylon fabric name of its most popular and best selling shirt. Gloweave is still in operation today and has expanded its range to include a wide variety of men's and women's clothing.
