This is the outfit that made me realize my adoration for classic clothes on my boys. It seemed slightly reminiscent of Ahab from Moby Dick. I realized how much I love using our childhood literature for inspiration for clothing.
Here are a few I can think of:
Little Lord Fauntleroy
Huckleberry Finn – So much so that Simon’s first birthday party was Huck Finn themed.
Anne of Green Gables – I seriously want those shoes for myself
And of course, Oliver Twist…
