I think either that, or hand me downs.  I read somewhere kids in the 40s and 50s would wear somewhat baggy clothes to give the illusion of hand-me-downs (I.E I have an older brother, don't with me). 

Great picture Illumin8em

Some vernacular photographs I found in Omaha a few years back.
I apologize that these pictures are smaller, and not the best resolution. I will try to scan them when I find an actual hard copy of this.  It was a cover i worked up for a failed zine i tried starting in 09/10).

Saw this one on tumblr. No credit to the photographer, but it was tagged 'Oregon' so i assume it's just a vernacular photograph someone found in Oregon.
