American Little Lord Fauntleroy Suit Headwear: Berets

Figure 1.--Sailor caps seem to have been especially common headwear with Fauntleroy suits. We note one boy wearing the saucer style of sailor cap based on the style actually worn by sailors at the time. We also notice boys wearing soft sailor caps like the boy here. Note the ring on his middle finger. This boy was from West Virginia. The portrait is undated, but was prbably taken in the 1890s.

We do not see many boys weariing Fauntleroy suits with berets. The Fauntleroy suit was particularly popular in America and we do not see many American boys wearing berets in the 19th century. At the time the beret was largely resricted to France and northern Spain. We do see some American boys wearing berets with the Fauntleroy styled outfits that a fe boys wore in the 1920s and 30s. We do see a few. hey are probabl best desribed as Tam O'Shanters.
