Who invented the Tube Top? @RachelMenkenNY knows! @MenkensNY cc @JanieBryant

Hello, I am @DonDraperSCP,

Who invented the Tube Top?

Many Fashion friends have asked, so I went straight to the source at @MenkensNY to seek out @RachelMenkenNY's wisdom on this @MadMenVogue Apparel of the late 1960's.

Here is what she told me:

Me: "What is a Tube top Rachel?"


"A tube top is a shoulder-less, sleeveless "tube" that wraps the torso. Such a top is generally very tight over the breasts in order to prevent the garment from falling. This is usually achieved with elastic bands at the top and bottom of the garment.

A similar version is one model of the halter top, which is a tube top that uses a single strap that passes round the back of the neck and has both ends attached to the front of the tube.

Me: "Who Invented the Tube Top Rachel?"


"The garment was invented by my #Jewish Uncle, an  American World War II veteran. His name was Murray Kleid, owner of S & M Fringing Inc. (named for Sol Makowsky & Murray Kleid). It was the largest women's accessories manufacturer throughout New York City's garment district.

He actually considered the first tube top "was a mistake", but then Uncle Murray realized the garment's potential. "Samples" of the tube top were sent to local distributors. Its positive reaction had them on shelves worldwide within a month or two after that.

Uncle Murray had a long history in the garment district 
of Manhattan, and used the strength he obtained in the garment district to keep any competition at bay, so for this, S & M Fringing, Inc. (which was located at 5th West 17th Street, New York City) was the sole manufacturer of tube tops for many decades.

It reached its highest level of popularity in the late 1970s. 

Here are some of the tube tops Rachel sells at @MenkensNY
