One of the small, sacred pleasures of scoring at the thrift store is glancing at the tag on your new obsession and instantly realizing just how rare your new piece is. Because truly who else has ever heard of a ’90s clothing line called "Bend Over"? Label Time is the oddly engrossing Instagram account not just documenting the seemingly endless string of companies that produced clothing in the ’80s and ’90s, but also elevating them to a kind of art form. The absurdity of a clothing company called "Anxious" is compounded when juxtaposed by hard evidence of a completely separate company someone found fit to name "Anxiety." A lot of them need to be seen to be believed, the rest are just fun to look at.
