My Coveralls/Jump Suit - Tully from Exeter 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. 3 people like this

Wellies waders riggers mud etc, guys seem into it and enjoy it but what happened to boilersuits (or coveralls) No one ever really seems into them these days! Are there still guys who will pull on their dirty boilersuit and just sit back in the house and relax in it?

London & south-east meet up (one sat or sun lunchtime) - ZYX123 from Unknown 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... 5 people like this
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 (coveralls.co.uk) has tried this before, or has any ideas/comments to make? Feedback please?

Flexothane Thermal Overalls - Aaron2 says ...12th of January 2014
Looking for some feedback on this coverall which I am considering purchasing for work in winter/spring time rain and colder temperatures. From the descriptions I have read it seems like a great flexible, waterproof and durable material. Do you think it's worth purchasing? I work outdoors all day and I am looking for a suit for cold, wet days. Any advice appreciated. Thanks, Aaron
Dirty Overalls - Tyr from Manchester says ...1st of January 2014
I'm 18, and I've started to develop an interest in overalls, especially used, dirty ones. 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. It might be an idea to get new ones and dirty them myself, but I'd much prefer it if someone else could do it for me ;) 3 people like this

boots and coveralls - 2Btiedup from Winsford says ...24th of November 2012
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. 5 people like this
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.

how I started - Chris2 from chesapeake says ...25th of July 2012
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 muster...it 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..

- Mark3 from Liverpool on How you Started says ...2nd of May 2012
Its a mystery to me exactly how and when my interest started, I just accept it and enjoy! 1 person likes this
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.
- white.one 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. 1 person likes this
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.
