I don't have any historical stories about White Stag, but in the 50's and early 60's when I was growing up, we always bragged if our new shorts or jacket had the White Stag label. That brand epitomized sportswear for us.
My favorite Spring jacket is a White Stag. Oh, how I love it. It's a nylon windbreaker style that's very plain and cut sort of like a classic James Dean jacket. Except, it's bright orange. The back is a stretchy nylon poly fabric that's striped orange and navy. That striping is also on the back of the sleeves. From the front--plain orange basic cropped hip length jacket. From the back--bold stripes. The ultimate in bicycling jackets for early Spring and Fall!
I have a White Stag on my site that's NWOT. I'd keep it if it wasn't orange. (I don't know how many orange jackets a person needs.)
Can't wait to read what your research yields. I love this company, too. Classic.

Holly, it really does just take one well crafted garment to make one fall in love with a label, does it not?!
