Italian School Smocks: Suppliers

Figure 1.--These two boys in 2001 model two dark blue school smocks. One is sode buttoning. I'm not sure about the other. Note they are worn with large almost Eton style collars.

HBC has little information on Italian companies that made school smocks. Presumably they were quite a number of them. Pergaos the government set standards. While smocks are not a pervasive as they once were they are still worn in Italy unlike other coubtries such as Belgium and France where they have virtually disappeared. HBC knows of at least one Italian company which still makes school smocks.
