Info on vintage children's sailor suits from a 1920's trade article
the sailor suit really comes into its own and is the correct wear for a
good many years when it takes on the authentic sailor style, made of
real Admiralty serge, designed in regulation style, and fitted with all
the navy attachments. The children of the Royal Family in all its
branches invariably wear sailor suits of this type during the years when
they are of the right age for. it. Two firms-Rowe of Gosport and Morant
of Southampton--specialize in these correct-style sailor suits. Rowe
has a fine place in Bond Street, selling all kinds of juvenile outfits,
but specializing on the sailor suit. Both firms are actual contractors
to the Admiralty for serge, which, according to Admiralty requirements,
must be of pure new wool and dyed with natural indigo.
