Offered is an outfit for Little Boy Blue. Actually, it an outfit for a little boy in blue. This is such a well constructed outfit and in good vintage shape. The little boy who wore this decades ago must not have played in this one. The fabric is a heavy cotton, but not a denim. The color is so close to denim thought that we are terming it denim blue. The style, in our opinion, is from the '40's or '50's--so similar to any ads or children's books you will see from that time period. It has a standard collar, short sleeves and button front closed with 4 black plastic buttons. There is a patch pocket on the left. The shirt buttons to the shorts with a series of white plastic waist buttons with each side doubling on the buttonholes--this is how the shorts close. There is a self fabric belt which is nicely reinforced with a heavier fabric. Details: belt--1 x 27 1/2 pull through with metal buckle; shorts--25 1/2 waist; 11" long and 3" inseam; shirt-6 1/4" sleeve; 11" long; 26 1/2" chest; 25 1/2" lower circumference. There are no tears and no major stains but Please Note: there is a dark discoloration on the back of the shirt--see pics. Cause? This outfit is not labeled-possibly home tailored. We have hand laundered this and air dried and pressed. Original listing price $35. Item 113105f
