    They're all wearing their dad's suits, but at least they're trying.

    How many kids their age nowadays can tie a tie on their own?

    Great picture...Even the poorer kids had style.

    Nowadays, it will be trainers ,tracksuits or baggy jeans and bandanas.

    I was watching a few pictures of guys on death row in the forties and fifties , and they were all suited and booted before the execution ..Was very strange.

    Dads must have be midgets, because the suits fit. Except for the big kid in the middle, the other kids are wearing suits that fit well. The kid wearing knickers and otc socks is badass.[​IMG]

    My mom and dad always dressed me in suits but they'd buy them a bit too big so they would last beyond one season. The pics reminds me of myself at that age.

    +1

    Then my brothers would wear them when they got to that age as well. It's funny looking through family albums and seeing the same blazer over and over again (a red blazer at that!).
