The Timeless Dungarees, their Evolution !

The overalls as you know are a garment with a timeless charm that we have all worn once in our lives during our childhood, or that we have seen on a building site marvelously put forward by the craftsmen and any other trade. In this article, we are going to look at its history by taking up all the qualities that have made the reputation of this overall from yesterday to tomorrow!

1 - The Dungarees of Yesterday

Associated with physical and rather dirty work, moving house, mechanics, painting, crafts, gardening, agriculture in general, and many others, dungarees have long been used for their practicality. It was a garment that allowed for all ranges of movement, made of heavy cotton fabric that could withstand all the stains and dirt of the activity in question.

This garment was dedicated to physical tasks and was adapted in its texture to the mistreatment that was inflicted on it. And the dungarees, if we only had one, could hold its protective role for years and years, washed, used, soiled and rewashed again and again... A pair of overalls for life, or almost! Physical occupations were the preserve of the male gender, few if any women were engaged in any kind of professional activity, we were in the era of the housewife and those who did work remained in their day clothes for the most part. The uniform of strength and virility had to be the dungarees, the ones we all saw, the blue denim dungarees, often faded over the years but still there! The second skin of the muscular man, well in his body, sure of his strength and his physique. The painter's white one, which isolated the stains and showed all its power of protection by the accumulation of stains of all colours as time passed for the painter to redo the walls, the facades, the windowsills. These overalls have certainly contributed to the beauty of our home interiors!

2 - Today's Dungarees

Have we put away this essential garment that could not adapt to the evolution of morals, female liberation and parity? Quite the opposite!

Just as we would not have had the idea of wearing dungarees to sew, read or do our shopping at a time when dungarees were dedicated to masculine effort because of their cut, their limited range of materials, one, two or even three different shapes, and just as few colors, Today, we can see that dungarees have adapted to the passing of time and have been able to adapt their shapes and textures to meet the ever-increasing diversity of our actions, activities, occupations and, as a new contemporary concept, our leisure activities! It has also been proposed to women, thus following the will of the century which advocates gender equality.

And yes, the dungarees have been worn in all eras from the industrial revolution to the present day, in all genres, in all seasons and for all purposes.

Is there any other garment that has managed to adapt to all the changes in society, as universal and as timeless? I was going to say immortal? No, there is only one, the DUN-GA-REES !

So for you gentlemen, who once wore this garment for professional purposes only, you now have the free choice to wear it in all circumstances.

So, for a trendy and relaxed look, you will reveal yourself in taupe-colored cotton overalls and enhance your outfit with a white shirt with a Mandarin collar. Don't forget to make a cuff at the bottom of the trousers to reveal your ankles and to enhance the small matching loafers. If you want a more casual look, then tie only one strap. The dungarees that accentuate virility will reveal the refinement that is in you and will certainly make you so seductive!

They help children learn to walk by providing support and ease of movement, which will give them confidence in their first steps!
