Children growing up in America’s colonial years saw a significant shift in their clothing options. For the very first time, clothing began to be designed specifically for children, allowing them to wear less constricting, less formal attire patterned after adult styles. Finally, young boys had their very own styles to choose from — though their clothes did bear many similarities to that of their fathers.
Every boys’ colonial-era outfit began with a simple white shirt that covered the body from neck to knee. The long-sleeved shirt was considered a boy’s undergarment, a foundational piece worn under more decorative pieces. A boy’s colonial shirt was typically made from fine or coarse white linen. Boys in high-class families decorated their shirts with ruffles, or ruffs, at the wrists and neck. A colonial dress shirt was a young boy’s best, most decorated shirt, most often decorated with lace and ruffles that would show elegance with layers of a waistcoat and jacket. No matter their class, colonial boys all shared the typical attire of a plain white shirt in the years of the 1700s.
