Made by Marx and Haas Clothing Co., St. Louis, MO,

During the early 1900's until the 1920's, clothiers selling Marx menswear gave, as a gift,  knickers to good customers after they had a baby boy.  It was a way of saying thank you for being a loyal customer as well as congratulations on a birth of a son. The box above is dated 1916 and contains a darling pair of wool plaid  knickers to be worn at the age of 1.

Printed inside the bottom of the box "More Than A Million Men Wear MarxMade Clothes".  Not only a gift to a new little boy, but a great promotional for the Marx Haas Co.

The knickers measure 10" long from the waist to hem.  18-1/2" around the waist.  8-1/4" center back to the crotch.

Knickers button on both sides of waist.  Very nice unused condition.

Condition of the box is good but not perfect ~ some paper loss at corners.
