Overall and Coveralls: Which is Right for You?
Workwear can mean a lot of different things, from business casual, to overalls and coveralls. Most everyone is familiar with overalls, whether you wore them in the 7th grade to be cool, or you honestly needed to wear them around the farm to keep clean. Coveralls, while they haven’t had their moment of trendy fashion, are perhaps the most used workwear for automotive technicians, pilots, painters, fishermen, and many other professions. While overalls are generally worn with a shirt and made of denim fabric, coveralls have a little bit more variety. You can find coveralls sized to fit over your clothing, or as your clothing, depending on your workwear needs. They come in a variety of colors, and even have different closures. While overalls usually just have straps that come over your shoulders and hook, coveralls tend to cover your whole torso as well as your legs. They come in short or long sleeve, depending on what you need. So how do you determine what you actually need?
