Super Clothes #5

In this instalment of Super Clothes, we’ll take a look at some super PJs.

This long-sleeve flannel-esque getup is size 3T.  It’s by Billy the Kid, from the 1980s.  As an aside ... did you know that the first time the real Billy the Kid was arrested, it was for stealing clothes from a laundry?  Perhaps that story inspired the name of the clothing line!

This Superman pajama set has Velcro tabs for a cape.  No manufacturer label survives.  It’s size 7.  I like the depiction of Superman’s belt across the front of the shirt, don’t you?

Here’s something similar, also with cape tabs, but no belt art.  For a little more creativity, check out ...

This set is from PCA, size 5.  For the life of me, I’m not sure if the “fly back in time” is an attempt to reference the Back to the Future films.  To me the Super Phizzog is reminiscent of the work of Ross Andru, for instance this page from 1968’s Superman 204.

That’s all for this week, friends.  Come on back next Monday for who knows what!
