Does anyone remember the time frame Koos was on Q?

I have a Koos shirt I tried to consign about five years ago and it kept coming back to me.  I wouldn't donate it, I kept thinking someone would buy it.  Wore it to work today and everyone had a fit.  

It buttons down the front, long sleeves, shirt collar.  The background is black; the front a mixture if artistic "florals" with a paisley feel in blue, burgandy, forest green with a thin gold outline. A lot of the background shows. The collar, cuffs, and sleeves are black with slightly varying lines in gold, same black background. 

How old is my shirt?  I love it again!!!

According to Wikipedia Koos was on QVC from 1998 - 2006.

I just googled Koos on QVC and looked at a couple of items that are not available but still have some reviews. They go back to 2007-08.

Just read on Wiki he was the designer of many of the sweaters Cosby wore on his sitcom.

One never knows if Wikipedia is right! 

 

ETA: I was referring to the dates Koos was on the Q, not the Cosby sweaters.  But that is an interesting factoid.

Wiki seemed to be pretty precise, it said he developed a line especially for the Q in 1998 and had his last on air presentation in Feb 2006. I thought the Cosby sweater thing was interesting since he was known for his very colorful, unusual sweaters on the series.

I always watched him (he was grouchy!) and didn't think he was on the Q for as many years as Wiki is saying.  Maybe it took a couple of years for him to "develop" the line before it aired?

I remember him and purchased many items from his line.  I think at this point they have all been donated but I did enjoy something different.  Now every line on OVC is getting to look the same.

I was thinking of Linda Dano this morning..........I haven't seen her on QVC in a long time, it seems.

I had a few things from his line that I donated years ago, I don't think I ever woer any of the clothing out in public. I came across a purse of his in my closet   last week and I do remember using the purse though.
