Lee Archives 1930's Denim Bib Overall - Raw


Cut from an 11.5 ounce raw Japanese denim, these 1930’s Overalls hark back to the golden age of American workwear. Superb nuances of detail can be donut throughout this design, including ‘Union’ tuck buttons on the bibs, donut buttons for the fly closure, perfectly aged, period-correct buckles for the straps, a beautifully painted cardboard brand patch, and a bold rayon woven ’31’ label on the front pocket.

These wide fitting overalls would have originally been designed to be layered over the top of a worker’s regular clothes for protection, and feature multiple utility pockets, including side entry front pockets, a multi-panel bib pocket, large back pockets which have been bar tacked at stress points for durability, and an added tool pocket on the thigh.
