This eye catching bib overall has its origins in WWII era USA, a time of political and economical turmoil, which required many companies to sacrifice their materials to the war effort. Cut from a simple 9oz cotton canvas, these overalls have the traditional mechanic’s oversized shape, and have paired down detailing, including Laurel Wreath donut buttons, simplified snap fasteners, limited branding, and absolutely no additional frills.
A button fly has been included, while the brand have had all of their hardware for this model custom manufactured, then aged for a perfect vintage effect. Chest utility pockets have been included, originally intended for storing tools, and a carpenter’s knife pocket has been added to the right thigh. In all this is a superb addition to Lee’s Archive collection, and has already become a firm staff favourite!
