Russian Boys' Garments: Coats

Russian beret
Figure 1.--Here we see a mother with her two sons. One wears an overcoat. The photograph s not dted, but was probably taken in the early 60s. We suspect thast this was a portrait taken by street photographer, perhaps on the first day of school.

Of course a warm winter coat is an essential garment in Russia with its cold climate. Here we mostly notice European cpat styles, although our information is very limited. We notice overcoats a might be worn by well-to-do European boys. There are many other styles worn by boys over time. This is a topic we need more information to develop. Here we see a Russian boy wearing an overcoat in the early 1960s.
