My Favorite Spaceman, Pt. 2

Two years after I posted "My Favorite Spaceman,” I came across ANOTHER vintage image of him in Tomorrowland. I probably have at least 10 images of this particular man in a spacesuit.

A closeup of the ticket booth for the Moonliner attraction:

And while I am of course interested in the Spaceman, I am more interested in the shirt the little boy is wearing. At first I thought he had on a tie, but it appears to be a pattern in the shirt AND the collar. Crazy!

Here's a previously published color image from July 1958 of “My Favorite Spaceman.”

At first glance I was sure the kid was wearing a scout shirt and kerchief. Nope! Very interesting design. Vintage clothes can be cool, but I'm not sure I'm on board with this shirt, lol!

A shirt with contrasting collar and button placket isn't all that rare in the world of 1950's fashion. But as stu29573 states - this shirt may be "a bit much". Now, those space outfits, on the other hand... anything with a cape or 'tuck and roll' yoke - those are always in good taste-!
