Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--October 2013

Figure 1.--This is an unidentified portrait of three Scottish boys, presumably brothers wearing identical green sweaters, kilts, knee socks, and tan bucks. It is a modern portrait, but we have no idea who the three boys are or who painted them. The painting is signed, but we can not make out the signature. Given the bucks, we would guess the painting as done in the 1960s. The green sweaters and knee socks with red flashes look rather like the boys attended a prep school in Crief. Also notice the leather sporan. The boys look to be about 5-10 years old. By the 1960s it was generally boys from well-to-do families that wore kilts, but Scottiosh Scouts alao wore them as well. You also saw them at schools, but mostly at private schools.

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.
