Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--September 2011

Figure 1.--Standard school shorts at two ffront pockets and no back pockets. Stylistic changes affected the pockets, especially the size of the pockets. Shorts at mid-century tended to be long and baggy. This allowed for large, voluminous pockets. Shorts in the 1960s began to become both shorter and more snug fitting. This meant that much less could be fitted into the pockets.

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 new HBC feature.
