The Grand Old Duke of York Dungarees


The Grand Old Duke of York Dungarees


He marched them up to the top of the hill and he marched them down again! The Grand Ol’ Duke of York dungarees are for a little one marching to his own tune. The hand embroidered toy soldiers will speak to little and big boys from every generation, and they are designed to last and be passed on to the next.

The traditional red-striped dungarees with marching toy soldiers embroidered across the chest are the ultimate staple in traditional dressing and look great with a shirt layered underneath. The wide leg shorts are designed to fit stylishly midway down the shin and up to the knee, to allow for a couple of growth spurts.

Our dungarees have longevity and function, as well as a timeless aesthetic, at the core of their design. Fabric covered buttons at the shoulder allow for easy dressing and the fine cotton is machine washable and soft against delicate skin. Fully lined in cotton and can be dressed up with a collared shirt or down with a long sleeved t-shirt or vest.

  • 100% fine cotton

Our clothes are designed for children to explore and have fun in! All our items can be machine washed on a delicate cycle at 30°C, ideally inside out to protect the smocking and embroidery.  Alternatively you can hand wash them, but please do not soak, bleach, rub or wring the item. We recommend line drying, and not using a tumble dryer.

For our silk dresses, we recommend dry cleaning. Please note that these consist of 100% raw silk, and that slight imperfections may occur as it is a natural fabric.

Please note that most of our items are smocked and embroidered by hand, and therefore slight variations in the exact design can occur. We are proud of our skilled craftspeople and to be a brand that values the beautiful traditional craft of smocking and embroidery!
