Abstract

In this 2012 interview, Marc Frisch shares his lifelong experience in the garment industry. His experience began in his youth, working in his father's knitting mill on E.66th and Euclid. After serving in WWII, he returned to his father's business. Later his brother took over, and he moved on to work for another company. His brother eventually sold the family business to Bobby Brown, which was where Mr. Frisch worked. He had become an expert in the knitting area of the business: machinery, yarns, dying, sweaters, etc. He ended up moving to Asia as the manufacturing moved there, and worked the business from there. He comments on the changes of the business over the years, offering a global and lifelong perspective.
