In the "Cornhill Magazine" of October, 1860, the above costume is described in the following terms:-"Knickerbockers, surely the prettiest boy's dress that has appeared these hundred years." In order to place this great improvement in boy's dress within the reach of all well-to-do families, Messrs. Nicoll now take the costume complete for Two Guineas. There is a large selection of Paletots, Overcoats, and other garments prepared for young gentlemen coming home for the holidays.—H. J. and D. Nicoll, 114, 110, 118, 120, Regent street, London.
