Baxter has a French pedigree as this design was extracted from a Bayard catalogue circa 1935. Baxter is an avant-garde silhouette that would have been worn by men who flaunted convention. While today this ensemble seems rather conservative, etiquette from the period would have dictated that men's fashion never push the boundaries of correct attire. Baxter's exaggerated silhouette would have been rather shocking in its time.
Baxter features Plus Eight knickerbockers that are fuller in the leg than the Nigel and are set 8 inches below the knee. They have cutaway pockets and 1 inch waistband.
Baxter is pictured in the Duke Shirt in White Pique.
