Vintage childrens trousers baby leggings RITEWARD 1930s 1950s SHOP SOILED unused


Children's vintage "Riteward" cotton leggings, probably made just before, or just after, the Second World War.
They have a definitely old-fashioned cut, with the ankle buttons and flared tops giving a rather equestrian look, a bit like jodphurs and spats.
They are made of a stretchy fleeced cotton material (stockinette?).
 
They have never been used - this is unsold shop stock, and has been stored at the shop for the last half-century or so.
This is a well-made garment designed to be suitable for either sex.
They still have the original pre-decimal shop price on the hand-written shop sticker - it was 8/11 (eight shillings and elevenpence).
Elasticated waist
Buttoned ankles
Elastic under the foot
Unlined.
These garments were made long before the days when "garment care instructions" were sewn into every garment.
I would suggest hand washing separately, just to be on the safe side.

Size:
They are labelled (not very helpfully!) as Size 3.
The shopkeeper has labelled them 20"
I would think this is possibly about 2 years, but please check the measurements on your own child's clothing, to make sure.
  • Size 3............Leg length (waist to hem) is 20 inches..........Inside leg is 12 inches

Colour:
Off-white
 
Condition:

SHOP SOILED

These leggings are unsold shop stock, from the mid-20th century.

They still have their handwritten original shop price tag attached.

The clothes have been properly stored in the shop, and are in very good general condition, as you can see.

However, they do have some storage marks.

They are about half a century old, and will need to be hand-washed before use.

Please remember that although they are well made, they are old, and not really suitable for prolonged or robust use.
