Not just play clothes, but *costume* play clothes!  How fun!  This “Indian Chief” costume was distributed under the Yankiboy Play Clothes brand by the Sachman Bros Co out of NYC.  It dates from the late 1940’s or early 1950’s and is quite special!  I love the orange detailing around the collar. 

Sachman Bros made a lot of other Western-inspired costumes including a Cowgirl and Cowboy.  They also carried an officially-licensed line of “Lone Ranger” play clothes in the late 1940s.  I have included an image of a “Lone Ranger” brochure in the gallery.

This costume will be listed for sale on EBay later this week!  Check out the link to my auctions at the top of the page!
