Workwear Overall

An overall, also called overalls, bib-and-brace overalls, or dungarees, is a type of garment which is usually used as protective clothing when working. Some people call an overall a "pair of overalls" by analogy with "pair of trousers".

Overalls were originally made of denim (cotton), but they can also be made of corduroy and khaki. Overalls were invented in the 1890s by Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis (Levi Strauss & Co.), but they went through an evolution to reach their modern form. Initially only used for protective clothing in work settings, they have become a garment of high fashion worn by all social classes.

Overalls were often worn at, and are seen as a symbol of, feminist protests of the 1970s. They were intended as an anti-female-fashion, since overalls are not form-fitting like many other female garments. Overalls allowed women freedom of movement, and they did not have to wear a bra underneath. They reference the overalls worn by women workers during World War I and World War II. Since overalls were considered to be male garments for most of their existence, women adopted them to portray a message that they have equal authority to men.
