From quaint gardens to construction sites, coffee shops to outdoor barbeques, overalls have transformed themselves over and over to the needs of their wearers.

In true utilitarian fashion, their name is their purpose—overalls were designed to be worn over the wearer’s clothes to protect them while they worked.

The term “overalls” once described many types of garments, including undergarments and outerwear. Eventually, the term narrowed to bib overalls, or dungarees depending on where you come from, describing a garment with a bib attached to trousers. 

The bib portion of overalls underwent several alterations in the course of time. For 30 years, both continuous and separate bibs were manufactured as popular styles. After 1916, continuous bibs were seldom made, and the separate bib has been the predominant style 

Quick fact!

Creation of the first overalls were in the year 1873. This was one of the original patents for a mass-produced overall to exist. They were not only also known as waist overall. But, the first mass-produced bib overall was actually patented and produced by Lee Jeans in 1921.
