Where to go to see coveralls

Published 29/04/2005


Coveralls (boilersuits), certainly in England seem out of vogue at the moment.
There was a time when you could pop along to Halfords, or Wicks stores, and be greeted by a nice young chap, dressed in a coverall. I remember spending many a happy hour, browsing around.

In terms of fashion, I hear that they are "in" again, with many fashion houses producing a jumpsuit in their collection, so that's your excuse to wear them out.
I remember, when they were "in" during the 80's. All you had to do is buy a baggy pair, and wear a thick belt, everyone was doing it.
Alternatively, you could have gone along to an army surplus store and bought a flight-suit.
