More Attention Being Paid Small ;,‘-Boy Styles; Well Dressed Child I* Not Denounced By ‘Corner Gang*
' J NEW YORK, May 7.—Styles for WyMst-pocket citizens command a J great deal of attention these days Tho freckle-faced urchin who had on# suit of "every day" corduroys and another for Sunday wear Is of a family himself ant he has now, In all probability, the father himself and he has been succeeded by a race of inmin* iature dandles who are Riving quit# serious attention to their appeal. If the juveniles are not especially Interested themselves their parents are, and the result Is pretty much the same. The well-dressed boy today Is neither denounced by th© “corner gang" nor bombed with mud balls. He ha© become something of an accepted Institution and while his sandlot associates may at times disapprove on the grounds that matters are being carried a bit too far, the tribulations of Little Lord Fauntleroy are no longer the common fate of the well dressed lad.
New York approves the 3-button Norfolk suit with knickers for small boy* this spring. The larger boys, of high school age, are wearing pretty much the same type of suit that the college men feature, which means the 3-button single-breasted sack with straight-hanging long trousers. While It is admittedly the case that In the west
»snd the south stores are selling the small chaps knicker suits they have not taken to the Norfolk, although it is expected in such quarters that the demand will increase for this style of suit for smaller boys.
Fundamentally, the small boy is a hero worshipper. His admiration is confined to firemen and policemen and poseibly aviators and steeple-jarks the greater part of the time but scarcely any of these spry individuals supply the necessary style Inspiration. Baseball players of national standing Invariably occupy pedestals in the small boy's estimation. For thnt reason there are thousands of Babe Ruths swarming about the vacant lots of the U. 8. A. wearing outfits that are named after famous athletes. When cinema favorites like Jackie Coogan hive been selected to set the styles for the small fry there has been great difficulty keeping them from growing out of their prestige. No small boy can long be a hero to small boys lf nature takes its course. Which Is one reason the silver screen has supplied very few permanent fa-h-|on plates, although tho older men take many of their dress lesda from both stage and screen.
Boys* Is mg Trousers.
This summer unlees all signs fall, the beaches will be peppered with small figures wearing bathing suits
that feature tho term "Life Guard" across the bosom. This Is a gesture in behalf of the robust Individuals who haul swimmers out of the sea. The bathing suits for small boys this summer are of practically the same style of tailoring as those for older men. Of course the adults are deprived of the exquisite delight of glorifying life-savers but the small boy’s outfit is decidedly mannish in general lines.
One of the things that stylists hear little about today is the long trouser suit for very small boys. Mothers spiked this proposition on the theory that sons grow up fast enough and, furthermore, young-appearing mothers did not care to hasten any process that would make them seem old themselves. For that reason New York women this season have clung rather persistently to the 8-button Norfolk, which is a compromise between the offspring's desire to be a man before he is a boy and still features somewhat masculine and adult lines. Knickers are popular with small boys because their fathers wear them and the taint Is thereby removed.
