I was looking over the catalog from the August Auctions Brooklyn Costume site, and found this pair of boy's pants from 1820mumble. Accidental research on how and how much people patched up clothes back in 1820mumble!



Answer: blatantly, until they fell into a million pieces. Also, those are wool pants, and only the waistband is lined, so there's an additional research point: people in 1820mumble clearly hated their kids.

There. Day well spent!

(The whole auction sidebar is worth checking out; some great pieces went up, and there are some nice detail shots.)
