Here’s a vintage “Dubbelwear” Boy’s Clothing Fall-Winter catalog. The individual store imprint on the front is for Monarch Trading Co., Monarch, WYO. Most likely 1916, though no date is given. Not in bad shape- just a few little nicks out of the front and back cover.
This catalog was a VERY thoughtful gift from a client last year, who thought we might appreciate it!
We do appreciate it- and wanted to share it for inspiration, especially now that fall-winter is upon us here in Utah and Wyoming.
The images I’ve uploaded here are low res- but am glad to share the big 600 dpi scans for download with fellow curators, collectors and costume history enthusiasts. Just let us know! What’s really remarkable about this catalog is its full color printing, especially the fabric swatches’ very detailed textures and weaves. Enjoy~ and dress warm this season like your mother told you.
