Dutch Mail Order Catalogs with Boys Clothings

Figure 1.--This 1968 Dutch catalog shows the casual shirt styles that were being worn. The pants, both the longs and sgorts, look rather formal in contrast.

HBC has noted Dutch mail order catalogs beginning about the 1960s. There may be earlier ones, but we are not yet aware of them. Unfortunately many of the ones that we have are not precisely dated. Like other catalogs, they are very useful on following transitions in boys clothing styles.



Dutch clothing catalogs help to follow the time line in changing boys' fashions. Unlike American catalogs, however, there seem to be a much shorter period of time involved.
