work-shirts

Overalls were originally made out of denim or heavy canvas for durability and function, or out of water-resistant or waterproof fabrics for fishing. Since they were considered strictly work related apparels for many decades, durability and comfort were the main considerations when designing overalls.

Until at a certain point of time, overalls were mainly worn by men or worn as well as children in the form of playsuits. But once women were required to enter the workforce to support the war effort during world war – I, their everyday garments were deemed too dangerous for factory work, and a flurry of patents came about to create the workwear that women needed.

After each World War, more fashionable overalls for women emerged. The more fashion-oriented overalls used lightweight cottons instead of denim or canvas, both of which were still relegated as work wear safety fabrics. 

The first patented garment with rivets as overalls was by Levi Strauss Company in the form of Levi’s 501 Blue Jean in 1873. Bib overalls were being made before this patent by companies such as Carhartt, but Lee Jeans was able to patent the style firs in 1921.
