Dutch Boys' Clothes: Seasonal Clothing

Figure 1.--This drawing shows typical Dutch children's clothing in the early 20th century. Notice the sailor suits, military-style cap, and wooden shoes.

Dutch boys have worn a lot of seasonal clothes. Stocking caps appear to have been popular. Heavy coats have not been as popular in the Netherlands as jackets and sweaters. Scarves appear to have been very popular. Some boys wore short pants and knee socks during the winter, but many boys also had long sometinmes baggy pants for wibnter wear.
