Children’s Clothing Salt Lake City, Utah
After many years in the adult clothing business, working in finer boutiques, we had our first child. Our Son was born! We realized after shopping in the Children’s market, how different the selection, presentation and mostly service differed from the better adult shops we had worked in. I didn’t understand why it looked cluttered and was such a different experience in service than we had given our adult customers over the many years my husband and I had been in the clothing world. Utah has more children than most states on average, so it seemed like a great opportunity to provide the Salt Lake Valley area, with the sophistication and service that better Men’s and Women’s shop offer.
Our love for Classic Traditional Finer Clothing, was the foundation for the lines of Clothing we would offer. Classic Traditional clothing was the inspiration for the Name of our shop, Four And Twenty Sailors (inspired from an old Mother Goose rhyme see below) When you see a vintage photo of a family, the children are often wearing some sort of Sailor Suit. While we offer so much more than Sailor Suits, they still remind me of the tradition and history of finer children’s clothing.
In the Fall of 1989 Four And Twenty Sailor was born. We carry the finest European designers from Holland, Spain, France and Italy blended with creative North and South American Manufacture; Newborns, Girls 2 to 16, boys 2 to 22, and Womens
A natural symbol for us was the anchor. We love it, because the anchor is seen as a symbol of a hope. Also, Raising a ship’s anchor represents the beginning of a journey, we were excited then and continue to be excited about our journey. The anchor also symbolizes stability, we are proud that we are looked upon for consistently offering clothing that is of great value and enduring. Stability encourages doing what one loves, embracing new possibilities and savoring good times with cherished family and friends, which is what our customers are.
I Saw a Ship a-Sailing

The four-and-twenty sailors That stood between the decks, Were four-and-twenty white mice With chains about their necks.
The captain was a duck, With a packet on his back; And when the ship began to move, The captain said, “Quack! Quack
