“These are a remarkable and rare survivor; when I found them they had never even been unfolded since being made! These were made for Stag Line; a now long disappeared shipping company who were based in North Shields. Based on the design these probably date from around the late 1960s.
Made of Heavy weight cotton drill in unusual white colour. The fabric has been sanforized; a method of pre shrinking cotton often found on old work clothing. They also feature removable buttons which are always something I look out for. Sometimes referred to as bullseye buttons these are held in place by a small ring on the inside of the garment and were designed to be removed when washing. They are a classic feature of British Workwear. Another of my favourites details on these is the cinch / buckle back which gives them a really early feel. Another nice element on these is the length. Vintage overalls often come up short in the leg but not here. These are really nice and long, plenty of room for a good turn up!
There's a touch of the golden era racing driver about these, they'd be perfect attire for Goodwood!”
