Men's (Boy's) Union Suit

From the seller:

Old stock early 1900s white window pane cotton union suit. It has button closures down the front and along the drop seat.
VINTAGE ~ ~ Edwardian, early 20s

LABEL ~ ~~ ~ no label

FABRIC ~ ~~ cotton

MEASUREMENTS ~ ~~ looks to be about a size 8 to 10 ~~ 27 1/2" length, 15" across the chest, 13 1/2" across the waist.

CONDITION ~ ~ Out of an old store. I have 4 of them, some has some dusty/age yellowing, very minor and simply need to be washed. The elastic insert in the legs is no longer stretchy and one of the suits has some spots on the shoulder strap (last photo). They're otherwise in excellent vintage condition.

From Me:

Since a picture says a thousand words, here's one from 1915!
