  • Green boiler suit

    I like these but which company makes them or where are they for sale?

      Hi, They look like KLM overalls or a copy of their style.

  • double front zipped coveralls

    - scruffyworkgear1 from south west london says ...05 months ago

    I don't really understand the point of these - can anyone suggest what they are about?

    That said, I do find some of the guys wearing them very attractive!

    • Mark ( from London on double front zipped coveralls says ...05 months ago

      They are based on parachute overalls. The zips run down the legs so you can quickly don and doff them without having to remove boots or having to step into them, UK power networks operatives wear black ones. They are popular in France. Delta sell them.

  • What brand are these?

    - SteveInDonny from Doncaster says ...11 months ago

    I spotted these on the motor transport website, they appear to be a mix of coverall blue on the back with yellow hi vis front and black reinforcements, any ideas?

    Hi all! Does anyone recognize the brand of these blue/orange coveralls shown in the video ?

    • Mark ( from London on Coverall Brand says ...5th of February 2021

      Hi Jamieboy,
      The Yellow and Grey ones are clearly Wenaas.
      The orange and blue ones at the start I can't quite make out the logo. I thought they were Frisads at first but now I'm not so sure, what do you think ?
      It's not the Mascot logo either.

      • Jamiemboy from Rotterdam on Coverall Brand says ...6th of February 2021

        Thanks! Yeah I found out its an old(?)/former logo of Fristads.. also they dont produce this exact model anymore sadly :(

  • My Coveralls/Jump Suit

    - Tully from Antwerpen says ...20th of June 2016

    January this year the Japanese company I work for decided that we would all have new uniforms. Working mainly in a office was surprised to go from no uniform to what they called a jump suit, really a fancy coverall. Trainee's which I am have to wear yellow. Designed to be worn over your undies and white t shirt, they provide the t shirts, it has what they call a mandarin collar, two zip, elasticated waist and writs, its quite shinny sort of nylon type finish, yet sort cotton feel the inside of the suit. I thought I would hate it, first couple of weeks we all moaned and I suppose I was anti as it was imposed on us, now I love it and it really turns me on. Never had to wear anything like this before, can't believe how horny I feel wearing it, only thing I am not keen on is the colour.

  • London & south-east meet up (one sat or sun lunchtime)

    - ZYX123 says ...9th of May 2015

    I've just posted a msg (below this?) asking if other workgear/waterproofs fellas know of clubs where you can wear gear. But it just occured to me...

    Meet up?: I'm old enough to appreciate I've been into this since childhood and I'm not going to outgrow it. Are there a few other fellas on this site who want to meet up in gear for a sandwich and coffee at a motorway services outside of London one Sat or Sun lunchtime?

    I doubt we'd all feel comfortable if it were too conspicuous, but reckon 'workmen' in gear wouldn't look out of place having sandwiches and a chat at the end of a carpark or on benches outside. No single location's going to suit everyone, but figure somewhere like South Mimms Services (M25/J23 - outside North/West London/Potters Bar) would work well for many as fellas from south and south-east UK ccould get there, as well as guys from London. Just an idea... feel free to leave comments as to feasibility, whether you'd be interested, etcc. I'm not sure anything fancy would work, else it becomes a hassle. Just really to put faces to profile names and feel like you're not alone in yr gear. I don't know if Mark ( has tried this before, or has any ideas/comments to make? Feedback please?

      Do a search on eBay - there's loads of gear there. I prefer the "used" section. Also, eBay's very competitive, and prices reasonable. But if you like something, but it costs more than you want to pay, if it doesn't sell wait for it to finish/click the 'contact seller' link/make an offer to the seller. I've got 2 items of my favourite gear that way.

  • Dirty Overalls

I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on how I might go about getting some used, dirty coveralls for myself. I don't really know anyone who wears them, but I really want some.

    Hi guys, just found this site and have enjoyed browsing through the photos. For me it's all about the total image of seeing a guy in dirty kit and boots, and the boots kind of seal the deal. I wear boots for work all the time and have loads of pairs to choose from. I also love the whole environment where guys work, especially portacabins or mechanics/tyre fitter places. These days its hard to find any potacabins as they've all been replaced with sealed container types, but I've enjoyed many sessions in dirty portacabins in the past. There must be guys who have access to places like these who share the same pleasures.

  • New uniform

    - Chaz from Bristol says ...19th of November 2012

    Had a shock today, started my new job and was told I had to wear a basic uniform when I had the interview. The job is a what they call a manual operative. When I arrived I had to strip off all my own clothes and hand over in a bag. I was then given some disposable boxer shorts a disposable coverall with socks attached a green pvc chemical coverall with hood, bright green chemical boots. To make things worse all was with a number on and manual operative on it, plus a wrist tag. I have never felt so degraded and humiliated. After just two hours I was still at a desk doing heath and safety with 3 others dressed the same. We were all so hot as the pvc suit had elasticated wrists and ankles and the zip started at the top and not at the bottom, there is a Velcro oever flap so you had have the suit zipped. They then said we had to go to Swindon for part two of the first day. This we did and then they stopped at the motorway services and we had to get out of the van and go in, in all this gear. Of course the line manager was wearing work trousers and polo shirt. Everybody was looking, it felt really weird. I have to wear this for at least 3 months, we do get new disposable boxers and coverall underwear everyday. It was so hot and just felt really awkward, don't know if I can stick it out. I thought I liked wearing coveralls, so be careful what you wish for.

Well I have stuck it out for 4 days now wearing this for 9 hours a day and it has been tough. It really hit me on the second day when I knew I had to put it all on again... Tmro find out what department I will work in for next 2 months 3 weeks, will still have to wear the same gear.

    I got issued a pair of coveralls when I joined the Navy. Often on deployment, we would take our coveralls off and just hang the on a hook on top of each other's coveralls. one time we were awakened in the middle of the night for a mandatory roll call. I was in such a hurry, I accidentally put my bunkmate's coveralls on and he did the same thing. we didn't find out about this until we showed up for was then i realized how much I liked wearing coveralls and looking other men wearing them. now I wear coveralls all the time and in the winter, a one piece long underwear suit with the flap in the back...there ain't nothing finer than seeing a sexy man wearing a pair of coveralls or bib overalls..

      As a teenager got a job on a garage forecourt, initially filling petrol and washing cars. Issued with red overalls with reflective stripe. Company logo on back and badge on front. Different jobs since with various levels of PPE. Travel to work on motorbike so wear bike gear and helmet over the overalls. Last few months have been working on mechanic training course with prisoners in local jail - they wear standard navy overalls with name badge while I wear orange hi viz overalls ( looks like I’m the prisoner sometimes!)! As the garage we use is just outside the prison complex they arrive and leave handcuffed

      Hi, I too love wearing the thick nylon boilersuits with a good full elasticated back. It is the combination of full elasticated back and ballooned out arse that really gets me going. The swishy sound of the nylon and the feel and shine on them makes the nylon boilersuit stand out on their own. As I say, I really love that balloooned out arse they have, cotton and older polycotton just don't have that look. Very hard to find them now, I think it is because too many guys were getting turn on at work by both wearing them with just underwear on or seeing other guys with them on. Would like to meet other guys who love these nylon boilersuits to go about together in public wearing a pair.

      I have slept in coveralls for a number of years, I only like wearing immaculate whites though, having had various Alexandra ones over the years I now wear Dickies Redhawk (style WD4839) as they seem to be a more comfortable fit

        I now wear a white Alexandra one with short sleeves, turns out that I have got a form of autism diagnosed last year and the white colour and feel of the coveralls is so relaxing…

      Yep - a lot. There's nothing like seeing major roadworks going on on a damp day - with all the workmen and engineers in hi-viz waterproofs - esp hi-viz waterproof trousers

  • Corporate Wear

    why is it now the trend for corporate wear instead of overalls ( boilersuits ) ??

      Hi Harry, I don't know why the current fad for corporate workwear is now all polo shirts, fleeces and cargo pants... bring back good old boilersuits I say

      • Mark3 from Liverpool on Corporate Wear says ...2nd of May 2012

        Couldn't agree more! I think its a "workwear fashion" thing - young people probably felt more comfortable in stuff that looked like casual clothing than workwear so it has caught on. But fashion has a tendency to come back round, maybe in a few years more guys will start suiting up again. Maybe the look could even go mainstream casual... We can live in hope! :)

      I don't much go for corporate coveralls, with one exception John Deere. If we were to vote for favourites the one bottom left on this page gets my vote:-

      Its a mystery to me exactly how and when my interest started, I just accept it and enjoy!

      I own about 12 boiler suits, also a USAF flight suit and various other items of one piece clothing. The collection is growing faster than I can wear them out. Dickies are a personal favourite.

    • OneInWhite from Staines (West London) on How you Started says ...17th of June 2012

      It all started for me over 20 years ago, my first job as an engineer with GEC meant we were issued with white coveralls (the designated colour for engineers at the time), before then I had never worn coveralls at all. I soon liked wearing them, later on I acquired more as I worked in different jobs. Then I found they made great \"nightsuits\" for sleeping in. So I now have about 15 in total (a mixture of long/short sleeve white, navy blue, Dickies and Alexandra make), also got some \"special\" white ones for wearing at the Goodwood Revival, did reduce the number I had because of lack of space......

    • GreatWesterner from Bristol on How you Started & How many says ...15th of April 2016

      I suppose it all started about forty years ago. A mate used to drive skip lorries for a firm of fellmongers. If ‘fellmonger’ is unfamiliar to you they are someone who gets rid of all the unusable bits of a carcass once the butcher has finished with it. Not only butchers in this case but vets’ failures and knackers’ yards too. A smellier load you won’t find on a UK highway. I fact you won’t find open skips in use these days either. Anyway when I had some spare time I went as driver’s mate and was given an old pair of green coveralls he had finished with. After doing this I decided I liked the idea of driving commercial vehicles (unlike busses their loads don’t complain about the driver) and took my HGV1 test.
      Here Catch 22 kicks in, you may have your licence but no one will employ you until you have got some experience. You can’t get experience until someone employs you. There is however an answer, Agency Driving.
      As an agency driver you are the lowest of the low. Maybe a different firm and a different truck several times a week, sometimes you fall lucky and are kept on by one company, maybe then even offered a full time job with them. I figured that the one way to stand out was to present a professional appearance and so I bought some smart light grey coveralls and had a patch sewn on the breast pocket saying ‘Driver’. I think that’s why, even now, I prefer to keep my Hi Vis clean and smart.
      Also at that time my mate and I got more serious about motorbikes. Out in all weathers we wanted something more waterproof than most of the gear was in those days. In a sports shop we found Rukka PVC sailing one-piece suits and found these were ideal over leathers and jeans. Someone else must have made the same discovery and these days Rukka are big in biking wear.
      Over the years I then did some voluntary bike road safety work with various police forces and learned a lot about riding and protective clothing. I started wearing Hi Vis on the bike too, I had of course also worn it when truck driving and in ports and oil refineries. Usually yellow sometimes blue and yellow.
      A Cop once let me into his secret about keeping Hi Vis clean. He reckoned that only original Daz has the chemicals to keep it really bright. It works for me but don’t use too much in an automatic washing machine as the foam will go everywhere. Less is best!
      Having discovered that fabric coveralls were very practical and very comfortable I was never without a pair when just working in the garage. Usually that was all I wore with steel toed boots.
      When I retired I found I missed meeting people at work and volunteered at a local railway. Here I had to pass a personal track safety exam and to work on the track had to wear orange Hi Vis. Interestingly yellow is not allowed as it does not show up against the trees along a railway. So depending on the work I am doing I now wear orange jacket and trousers and white hard hat or for inside work orange coveralls. For chainsaw work I also have green chaps filled with long fibres that stop the chainsaw if cut. I also have the type of Chainsaw boots that are too shiny to let the chain cut them. The orange jacket is useful for van driving too as it gives some protection getting in and out of the van and other van drivers give way more often if they are in Hi Vis too.

    • Mark3 from Liverpool on Dickies Deluxe coveralls says ...2nd of May 2012

      The Dickies Deluxe overalls are great. Been a big fan of Dickies since I bought a pair of black Redhawk overalls a few years back.

      Mine are a 36 tall in green from Ebay (I'm quite skinny and prefer a tight fit with no clothes underneath) and they are the best fitting overalls I've ever worn. Unfortunately I think Dickies have recently changed the sizing of the deluxe overalls to S M L etc instead of the more precise chest measurements. Would love a pair of these in every colour, they are great. Couldn't recommend them more if you like a nice fit!

      Hello Mark, I love your website. It is tremendous! Lots of guys in their coveralls working, getting wet or dirty and lots of outdoor scenes! I can't get enough. How would I go about editing my contact message. When I try to email you it does not go through. Any suggestions?

      Hi Mark, Nice to see you have updated the site and added some new pictures. Have you thought of having a section of the site where visitors can add images of their own? It would be great to see many pictures contributed from a variety of sources here, this being one of the few sites which cater for people with an interest in men in overalls and workwear.

      Hi Mark,
      Just wanted to say 'Thanks' for a great site of some real guys wearing coveralls. Particularly like the Truck Washers, well protected and filthy work gear. I used to wash cars in the late 1960's for the '5 Minute' carwash group, they kitted us out in heavy duty pvc two piece suits with the logo on your back. Hard work but enjoyable and there was a great group of guys all kitted, all enjoying the work. Not sure if they appreciated the gear as much as I did though ;)
      Thanks again Rbr49
