I thought I'd give Panoply coveralls another go, as I wasn't impressed by their Mach 3 coveralls, and although the style was good, I marked them down on the fit.

The Double Zip Boilersuit is another striking design from Panoply; I tend to associate the double-zip garments with parachute jumpsuits; the double-zip design is also quite popular in France. I guess handy if you want to dress or undress in a hurry, once you've got the knack of getting in and out of it.

The size 'L' came up quite large on me and felt a bit baggy on. I didn't like the neck, as it felt quite exposed, and it didn't come up high enough. I guess it's more designed to wear over thick clothes.

The sleeves were also too long and loose, and I didn't like that the zips ended about 10cms short of the end of the legs, as these flapped around when you walked.

In conclusion, good looks, but let down on the proportions.

Likes

  • Stylish design, like the Yellow/Grey colour scheme

Dislikes

  • The cut of the boilersuit, correct height and waist, but cut too generously and generally baggy.
