Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--July 2010

Figure 1.--I think this Japanese boy is dressed up for his first day of school. The photograph is undated, but looks like the 1980s. Japanese boys in the 1980s wore short cut shorts. Tights were worn for warmth, but white tights were popular when dressing up. Japanese boys commonly got a new suit when they began school. This boy is wearing a double-breasted suit and blue tie with white shirt--very formal indeed. The shoulder straps are part of his school book satchel. The boy looks to me to be about 6 years old.

Some HBC readers tell us that they would like to be able to access new pages, but do not want to receive E-mails on every new page added to HBC. We have also for several years now experienced problems dealing with AOL. Thus we have created this page for HBC readers. We will list new pages or existing pages to which we have added additional information. We used to maintain a page like this. We know from this experience that we sometimes forget to add a new page, but we will try to remember to do this as much as possible. There will not be a link on our home page so you will want to add this to your favorites/book marks. We plan to only make this page available to readers who support HBC. There may be occasional changes in the URL. Just let me know if you have any question about this HBC feature.
